    Re: Twins close to signing O-Dog

    Indeed it would: having both Punto and a Harris/Valencia platoon at third would be bad. Having Hudson at 2B and some combo of the aforementioned 3 would be much more palatable.

    I love how Mauer's blackmailing of the Twins to improve their roster is working Now he just needs to hold up his end of the bargain and re-up with the Twins...

    Re: Twins close to signing O-Dog

    As a Dodger fan I loved the O-dog. He's a great clubhouse guy and a heck of a second baseman as long as he's healthy. I think there is some concern about a prior wrist injury, but maybe it's now ok.

    I'd put Cuddyer before Kubel due to Kubel's significant troubles against lefties.

    It'd be a really nice signing for the Twins. They'll get more production out of 2B than the Sox will get out of DH.

    I would be thrilled if we signed o-dog! Great defensive player, able to fit into the twins running game and great clubhouse guy to boot.

    Re: Twins close to signing O-Dog

    Did Hudson start for the Dodgers all season long last year? Or did he get hurt? Why do I recall Ronnie Belliard playing 2B for LA toward the end of last season? Maybe I was drinking too much and just don't remember this correctly?

    Exactly. My expectations for this season may be off the charts if both of those happen before spring training.

    Re: Twins close to signing O-Dog

    1 year 5 million according to Buster Olney. A bit higher than I thought it be which makes me wonder if some of it incentive based?
