Defense and Gold Gloves: Orlando Hudson

Let us suppose that today's waiver of Orlando Hudson represents the end of the road for the man we rather uncreatively called O-Dog. (Let's in particular note that Hudson's middle name is "Thill." That's way cooler than "O-Dog.") His defense presents another lens through which to examine the way defensive reputations, offensive production, and...

Assessing Padres Middle Infield Options for 2012

One of last year’s priorities for the Padres was to shore up the middle infield. Jed Hoyer and the front office brass failed when they brought in Orlando Hudson and traded (overpaying) for Jason Bartlett in hopes of "playing Petco Park into an advantage,” with two solid defenders up the middle. Hoyer banked on Jason Bartlett to have a rebound year, but that didn't...
