Everybody's waiting on Orlando Hudson

Jan 28, 2010, 9:00 AM EDT

Rosenthal notes that there is a big game of musical chairs afoot when it comes to infielders, and Orlando Hudson is the guy controlling the record player. Specifically, the Nats, Twins, Reds, Tigers Rockies and maybe the Mariners and Rays could all use infield help, while Hudson, Adam Kennedy, Felipe Lopez, Orlando Cabrera and Melvin Mora are all looking for work. Rosenthal calls Hudson “the linchpin,” and that once he signs all of those other guys and teams will pair off.

I think I’ll stop at three metaphors.

Anyway, you know the final embers of the hot stove are starting to cool — four! — when everything that remains to be done depends on a guy who lost his job to Ron Belliard last year.

    Does anyone know why Joe sat him in the Playoffs………
    How come he can’t get a multi year deal, ?

    Cincinnati’s biggest infield need is at shortstop, so of that group, only Lopez or Cabrera would make sense.

    Your last sentence is incomplete Craig. It leaves me hanging like a no-touch striptease.

    Your site was extremely interesting, especially since I was searching for thoughts on this subject last Thursday.
