I did not sleep well last night, which resulted in me waking up a lot earlier than I had originally wanted to. I have a lot I need to get done today, so overall it probably isn't a bad thing. Certainly not a bad thing fo you all, because I have been browsing the internet looking for as much Padres information as I could. And I have found some stories today that go beyond the usual blogs that I share from. So I hope that you are all ready for a mixed array of articles. Here are your Padres links for today:

Red Sox rumored to be in pursuit of Jason Bartlett - New England Cable News
"Except Bartlett's 2012 salary of $5.5 million isn't that much less than Scutaro's $6 million. So if you got rid of Scutaro to save money . . . where's the savings?"

The San Diego Padres will sign veteran right hander Jeff Suppan to a minor league contract and invite him out to Spring Training. He will add some depth to the pitching staff in the Spring and log in some good innings. Suppan will be entering his 17th season in the league and he made his major league debut in 1995 with the Boston Red Sox.
He has a career 138-143 record with...
Corey Luebke (credits below) Petco Park is a magical place for pitchers. In maybe its greatest illusion it made a 39 year old Woody Williams look like a competent pitcher in 2006. Williams’ career xFIP was 4.64 and he hadn’t posted an xFIP under 4.00 since 2002. And despite his 5.09 xFIP and 4.46 K/9, Petco helped make Williams a 3.65 ERA pitcher in 2006. The worst...
Dan Robertson, 26, was drafted in the thirty-third round of the 2008 draft, which may in a few years go down as one of the better San Diego drafts with the organization selecting Logan Forsythe, Brad Brach, Blake Tekotte and Jaff Decker among others.

It's a great day to be a Padres fan. We are receiving national attention about our team. Now I know what you are all thinking, "How is this possible?" Apparently the people at ESPN have come to their senses and realized that there are teams west of the Mississippi other than the Dodgers and Giants. It's amazing, I know. You can see what I'm talking about in...
The San Diego Padres on Wednesday signed veteran hurler Jeff Suppan to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.
There you have it folks. The football season is over and the hooplah of it all will soon die down as well. The New York (Jersey?) Giants are your Super Bowl champions after beating the Patriots yesterday. All in all it was a decent game. I personally spent most of the game with it muted because Chris Collinsworth bugs me, but that's just me. So now that football is over eyes...

Keith Law’s list of the Top 100 prospects in baseball came out today, though you have to be an ESPN Insider subscriber in order to see the rankings. Since the content is behind a paywall, I’m not going to give away too many of the rankings, but there were a few things on the list that caused me to do some thinking, and those thoughts inspired this post.
The first thing I noticed...
