This week Nick and Travis are joined by Ghost of Ray Kroc to talk about the impending Hosmer signing, and then mid podcast, IT HAPPENED! Hosmer got 8 years and the guys react to it in real time. Put it in the time capsule, boys! They also talk about Dennis Lin joining The Athletic and Kevin Acee becoming the UT beat writer for the Pads.
This week Nick is still missing, so Dallas and Travis sit down with Eric from the 5.5 Podcast, and Redman to TKF’s Wu-Tang - Andy Keatts! They discuss what it’s like to be a Football fan watching another city celebrate something we’ll never have, and how Dean Spanos & Co have managed to somehow ruin their relationship with San Diego even more. Then they talk about the rumor of collusion between the MLB owners. Are free agents being screwed or are the free agents just not that good? Does Dallas sympathize with the owners? Does anyone truly understand the CBA? Eric wants us to wait till next offseason to talk collusion and Travis hates unions. Then Andy weighs in on the recent sale of the Union Tribune to a billionaire in LA. Will it save the paper or damage it?

A Super Bowl spectacular! Kind of. Dallas goes to Travis' house as they watch the Eagles take down the mighty Patriots. It was an up and down game that reminded the duo of how exciting football can be and how their hatred for Dean Spanos has only grown. They also weigh in on Pink and JT's performances, while Dallas is complimented and Travis' mom makes more noise than humanly possible. Nick spent the day consoling his hardcore Patriot fan wife and has been unreachable for the last 48 hours.

This week the guys recap Trevor Week on the website. Nobody can take his induction away from us! Then they discuss the great news that the Padres got 7 players on the MLB Pipeline's Top 100 prospects list. Will we ever get to know these players? It's hard to say but the guys discuss ways the team and media partners can wet the public's appetite for getting familiar with them before they get here. Last they talk about SD as a potential XFL 2.0 destination.
This week the guys sit down with SD Radio veterans Dave Palet and Jeff Dotseth from the Dave and Jeff Show. They talk about the big Trevor Hoffman to the Hall of Fame news and what it means for the Padres fanbase. Then they talk about the current direction of the franchise as the 2018 season approaches. Should the have gone harder at Christian Yelich? Should they be all in on Eric Hosmer? These are questions all Padres fans will have to think about with Spring Training around the corner. Dave and Jeff share stories from their time bouncing around the AM radio dial and give insight to the recent sports history of this town.
This week the guys get together to talk about the blistering hot stove the Padres are engaged in. Will Eric Hosmer sign? Is the Brad Hand extension a good idea? The season isn't that far away and it's starting to look like the Padres aren't going to be that much different than last year.
Then they discuss all things Dan Sileo! Will his departure from Mighty 1090 lead to a prominent role covering the Padres? The rumors are flying and the Kept Faith boys got takes!
This week Nick talks to stand up comic, San Diego native and co-host of the F*CK The Chargers podcast Jono Zalay. They go back through the year and discuss the feelings they had watching their old team play for another city. Then Nick stops by his Dad's house to watch the Chargers beat the Raiders and miss the playoffs. It was a good time had by all!
Come to The Kept Faith's Winter Meeting 2018 at the Whistle Stop on January 10th at 7:30pm. There will be great guests during the live pod and trivia afterwards.
This week the guys talk about the totally overwhelming mind melting 2018 Winter Meetings that the Padres had in Orlando. Ohtani chose the Angels, while Chase Headley and Freddy Galvis are coming to San Diego. Are the Padres done? It's hard to tell with Eric Hosmer's situation still up in there.
Then Nick and Travis have a little chat with Kevin Gossett from the popular Instagram account People of Petco Park. He talks about his process and lifelong dedication to the Friars. He will also be DJing the January 10th Live Pod at the Whistlestop: TKF's Winter Meeting 2018!
