Off Season Open Thread: Kotsay / Rule 5 / 40 Man / FA?

I have taken in upon myself to create an open thread to talk about all matter of Padres topics for the off season.

Here are some possible topics:

- More Kotsay signing analysis: For me, I still like it because his PH triple split is: 293./.356/.317 and with RISP: .323/.386/.419... two places the Padres struggled.

- Rule 5 Draft is coming up.  I hope we just protect guys and don't bother signing anyway.

- With 40 Man rosters set, we may make some Minor League FA signings.

- We need to address RF via FA or Trade, in my humble opinion

- Other things: more thoughts on the uniforms, other places we need to address, payroll issues, projected lineup, TRADING ORLANDO HUDSON (face it FO, SS market is jammed up, you have to move O-Dawg!)

Yay Padres!
