Twins make a good move
Just yesterday we were talking about how bad the Twins infield was and that their second baseman Nick Punto is a great bench guy because of his ability to play multiple positions . So after reading my article the Twins made a power move and signed Orlando Hudson to play Second Base in 2010. Hudson got a one year 3 million dollar one year deal with an agreement that if he is deemed a class A free agent they will not offer him arbitration. Hudson is a four time gold glove recipient , his most recent being in 2009 with the Dodgers where he committed only 8 errors and held a .988 fielding percentage. Besides having a great glove Hudson can hit too. Last season he hit .288 and holds a career average of .282. He doesn’t have a bunch of power but there is no shame in being a gold glover that hits for average.
Is this enough to win the Twins the Division? Unfortunately no, they still have horrible pitching . Not one of their starters have an ERA under four. Sorry Minnesota fans this is not going to be your year.
