Since no one else wants to do this, I guess I’ll keep going. This week Sez Bill talks roster moves, front office changes, and rants. Lots and lots of rants.

All the quotes are in their original form. Nothing has been corrected, added, or otherwise modified (despite the Chrome browser telling me to correct ALL the spelling errors). My commentary is in italics.

Enjoy!

Well, maybe enjoy is the wrong word…

Tolerate!

In case you weren’t paying attention…

We were a little light this week. Everyone was either on vacation, in the process of moving, or just being straight up lazy.

What do you people expect for free? Anyway…

Hi, filling in for Ray again. He seems to be back from vacation, but we’ll let him catch his breath. In this edition of Sez Bill, we visit the underground catacombs of Paris, take a look at the charming Bordeaux countryside, join fishermen on the coast of Normandy, and tour the magical palace at Versailles. Wait, no. None of that.

Here we go!

– Too many “ifs” for Bill’s sake, but the Padres aren’t as panicked about finding a starting pitcher on the market with Kelly looking sharp, Cashner being closer than originally thought, Stauffer being ready to start the season, and apparently Anthony Bass simply being present.

– Gyorko’s service time is not a concern for Byrnes or Black. However, if he doesn’t win a starting job, he’ll start the season in Tucson. Will not be used as a reserve in San Diego.

– Matt Wisler charms Bill, who doesn’t think Donn Roach makes the rotation out of Spring Training. (Earlier today, Corey Brock predicted Roach would be in the Padres’ rotation by season’s end.)

– The Padres aren’t concerned about Everth Cabrera situation. Bill’s more concerned with him staying healthy than being suspended. Worst case, thinks Forsythe and Ransom are insurance and the Padres will not seek another shortstop.

– Like’s Tyson Ross’s stuff, not his control. (Ray’s going to love this) Suggests Ross is the kind of pitcher Balsley has had success “fixing” in the past.

Hi! Ray’s unavailable for #SezBill today, and just like I would sometimes do on Twitter, I’m taking over for the day. Let’s get right to it, shall we?

– Bill doesn’t think Carlos Quentin’s weight loss will affect his power. Feels his power comes from bat speed and torque, which is why his knee does concern him.

– Liriano injured his elbow on one throw during a workout at the Padres Academy in the Dominican Republic. Tommy John surgery will be performed next Wednesday, by Dr. Hoenecke at Scripps.

– Experiences relayed to him by other Padres has Bill thinking Liriano won’t be in San Diego until the end of 2014. Liriano situation doesn’t affect Chase Headley in any way.

– Bill doesn’t quite know how insurance on player contracts work, other that it’s expensive and it’s becoming harder to find underwriters.
