As reported by Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports,
The Mets are desperate to move second baseman Luis Castillo to create a spot for free agent Orlando Hudson.
The only way to do it would be to exchange Castillo’s contract for another of similar value, but lots of luck.
When the Mets asked the Rangers about a Castillo-for-Vicente Padilla — a swap that would require the Rangers to move Ian Kinsler to left field — they were told, “No thank you.”
I would be thrilled to see Orlando Hudson on this team…
Come on Omar, get it done!
