Josh Byrnes asked about Ian Kennedy trade and possible substitutes for Everth Cabrera

Christopher Hanewinckel-USA TODA

Marty Caswell's interview, my notes.

  • Josh Byrnes has traded for Ian Kennedy twice. Kennedy has great delivery and arm action. He has 4 pitches he can execute. "He has better 'stuff' than people give him credit for." He's shown he can produce like a middle or front of the rotation pitcher. He has the resume and is capable of big seasons.
  • The Padres will keep looking to build the team during the off-season.
  • "We don't think we're that far away. We've had stretches of winning." The Padres have been over .500 for the last 180 games.
  • Byrnes thinks the trade heightens the rivalry with the Dodgers, since Kennedy and Carlos Quentin have both fought with Dodger players.
  • If Everth Cabrera is suspended than Logan Forsythe and Alexi Amarista will see a lot of playing time at shortstop.
