Denver On The Hudson?

Fox Sports reports that NL West rival Rockies are interested in the non-artbitrated O-Dog:

Add the Rockies to the teams showing interest in second baseman Orlando Hudson. The Rockies made overtures to Hudson early in the free-agent market a year ago, but by the time Hudson realized the market he expected wasn't going to develop, the Rockies had reached their budget. Hudson wound up signing with the Dodgers.

The Rockies have renewed interest in Hudson this year. They feel he could give them a spark at the top of the lineup, and by signing Hudson they could address their need for a right-handed bat who could provide protection at first and third, and also play the outfield and shortstop, his original big-league position — Clint Barmes, the team's primary second baseman a year ago.

Figgins set to sign with the Mariners. Hate to say it, but he would've been a perfect fit for the Dodgers at the top of the line-up and at 2nd base until Blake's contract runs out. Then he moves to 3rd and Joyce DeWitt takes over at the keystone.

I hope you choke on your eggs Benedict, Frank and/or Jamie.

In other news; Brad Penny available. Refuses 1 yr contract with the Gnats.

If we sign him, I'm buying an Angel cap.

Will Miller the Tattooed Lady be our team's biggest splash?

Mr. LA Sports Fan- Your comment completely ignores Prentice Redman.

For shame.
