This is the latest I’ve come out with a This (Last) Week in Padres Twitter.  You can thank an insatiable desire to drive to Ensenada to eat fish tacos and drink beer at Cerveceria Transpeninsular which trumped the desire to sit down and write.  And let me stress what a great idea that turned out to be.  If you don’t have a SENTRI card to cross into Baja on a whim, I don’t even know what you’re doing here.  This will be a key issue whenever we do a Gwynntelligence Miles and Points seminar at the Kings Inn where I can sum up how I earned 160,000 points and miles THIS MONTH.  Full on bragging here.

Let’s get to the hot, new feature that’s sweeping the internet:

Days Since Marver Has Actually Written Something: 86 days

At this point, does anyone really miss Marver?  He’s an apparition that may or may not actually exist.

Gwynntelligence Podcast: John Gennaro

I had the pleasure of sitting down with John Gennaro last week at 32 North Brewing to do a podcast sans Marver.  It was a new experience to sit down with someone who is actually talented on a microphone and knows how to do broadcasting, unlike the hosts of the Gwynntelligence Podcast.  We got way off track a few times and spent ten minutes talking about how great Santa Rosa is.  We also drank a lot of delicious beers from 32 North, which I had no idea existed, but ended up having a terrific tap room, great beers, and a fun atmosphere.  I honestly think this is one of the best episodes of the Gwynntelligence Podcast yet.

Padres 5 Win Pass: NOT GREAT BOB

I’ve thought about the 5 Win Pass this week.  It got an awful lot of publicity, including from us, for something that like 80 people are going to buy.  It will barely move the needle in the plummeting attendance numbers.  Despite the terrible review, it makes sense for someone that literally wants to go to EVERY game in June.  It’s a fine deal for that (in all likelihood, barring a five game winning streak), I just don’t know who this deal is really for.  Fans that like this Padres team that much probably have season tickets already.  And those casual fans that the Padres should be trying to bring into the fold as repeat customers?  They don’t have the time or will to go to every Padres game.  They’re the types that might go on a couple Saturdays and will reap the least benefit from a deal like this.  So who is this really for?  We’ve pointed it out before, but this is the end result of having executives running things with no formal training or education and nothing but a track record of repeat failures.

The Kept Faith: On Booing Weaver

I always like when Dallas McLaughlin rears his head in the blogosphere by writing something.  Dallas best captures the issues related to fans booing Jered Weaver for doing exactly what we all expected him to do in this post.  I brought this up in my podcast with Gennaro but was so tired and kind of drunk when it came up that I brushed over it, but Dallas brings up the issue that everyone booed Weaver but not the guys that decided to sign him or sign his checks.  I think it’s interesting that AJ can do no wrong with large portions of the fanbase (and I’m on #TeamAJ!), to the point where he signs a Jered Weaver who we all knew would suck and then he sucks and people blame Weaver for daring to accept $3M thrust into his face.  We would have roasted Towers or Byrnes for this.

On an aside, I’ve seen a lot of stand up comedy.  I think no trip to New York City is complete without going to the Comedy Cellar at least once.  I’ve seen a lot of great comedians like Jim Norton, Don Rickles, Bob Saget, David Koechner, Dave Attell, Norm Macdonald, highlighted by a 45 minute walk-in set by Louis CK at the Comedy Cellar.  I saw Dallas on Sunday and I can just …
