As Sandy Alderson continues to hire his buddies and show no urgency in hiring a manager, he needs to consider bringing Orlando Hudson to the New York Mets. Hopefully Alderson will finally cut loose the dead weight that is Luis Castillo. The Mets should have signed Hudson in 2009, but instead they let him go to the Dodgers. Once again the Mets had another chance earlier this year to sign Hudson, but Omar didn’t. Since things are […]
The Minnesota Twins announced today that they have agreed to terms with second baseman Orlando Hudson on a one-year contract worth $5 million dollars for the 2010 season. Hudson, 32, batted .283 (156-for-551) with 35 doubles, six triples, nine home runs and 62 RBIs in 149 games with the Los Angeles Dodgers last season. He was named to his second career All-Star team (2007) and also won his fourth career Rawlings Gold Glove Award (2005, […]
For the last 2 off seasons Met fans have been debating furiously with each other on whether or not the Mets should sign Orlando Hudson. I believe the pro Hudson fans last season wanted him for the simple fact that Hudson is not Luis Castillo. Whatever other skills Hudson possessed did not matter to Met fans who wanted to run Luis Castillo out of town after his horrible 2008 season which saw him become a […]
According to Bill Ladson who covers the Washington Nationals for MLB.com, second baseman Orlando Hudson is seeking a $9 million dollar contract for next season. The market for second baseman is very soft and in my opinion, Hudson will end up taking a one year deal just as he did last season. The Mets would still like to add the O-Dog, but probably not for more than $6 million in guaranteed money. Meanwhile, John Morosi of Fox […]
Jerry Crasnick of ESPN reports that according to one of his sources, the Mets and Red Sox are considering a swap of Mike Lowell and Luis Castillo, but that it’s not known how far along the discussion has gone. Mike Lowell is in the final year of a contract that will pay him $12 million next season, while Castillo is owed the same amount, but over two seasons, not one. I like Lowell who batted […]
Deal with it Mets fans. They say where there’s smoke there’s fire, and right now there is an inferno raging where Luis Castillo is concerned. Debating whether Luis Castillo should stay or go has been a fun and interesting exercise for Mets fans lately, but the fact of the matter is we have no say in determining Castillo’s home field next season. Those who do have a say have made it perfectly clear by their […]
With the Winter Meetings already underway, Mets GM Omar Minaya (or according to some, Jeff Wilpon in disguise) is faced with the daunting task of building a World Series contending team for 2010. Aside from the obvious needs of a left fielder and a top-of-the-rotation starting pitcher, Minaya has made it clear that the team will be looking to upgrade at second base. This past week there have already been rumblings about a potential deal […]
Joel Sherman of the NY Post, believes the Mets may have blundered when they decided against adding Orlando Hudson, especially after his price went down to one year, $4 million dollars. Orlando Hudson hit for the cycle on Monday against the Giants. It is interesting that the two players Met fans pined for most this offseason – Hudson and Manny Ramirez – both have ended up with the Dodgers. Imagine, say, the Dodgers beating out […]
