- Alderson was at the owner's meeting and then a safety meeting about wooden bats. There will be recommendations made about bats in the next few weeks.
- Alderson wasn't aware that Kouzmanoff was having shoulder issues until a couple of weeks ago.
- Everybody at the Padres believes Matt Bush has a Major League arm. The Padres aren't about to give up on what they've seen of his "electric right arm"
- Alderson says they made the offer to Hoffman in good faith and that they wanted him on the team. Alderson still hopes they get a chance to talk to Hoffman. "At this point he may not want to be back with us".
- Alderson continues to think that Hoffman pitched well enough to come back and play for the Padres. Some of the 5 other people in the Front Office he consults with didn't feel as strongly as him.
