2B? i think you're thinking of Jerry Hairston, 2B for Texas?

Its obvious that, if healthy, Hairston would be an upgrade with the bat. Now the superior glove goes to Orlando, but he hasn't been as good as advertised, thus far. Hairston is cheaper and will be for awhile. Teams like the Cards, Rockies, & Mets may need a guy like Hudson. I think Arizona would do it if the could improve their pitching staff and spend the money saved on a SP. The Jays traded him, why not D'Backs. It makes sense, come again. ;-D

Any team would trade any player if it would improve their team. Just gets old seeing all of your blindly speculated trade posts that you post daily. No offense.

Well a couple points that seem to being going unoticed. For one, Hairston isn't a 2B and hasn't been for a few years now. He couldn't hack it with the glove and was moved off to basically exile in OF. He never showed enough for the D'Backs to seriously consider him and I'm not sure much has changed w/ Quentin and Young looming around. The second point being, he was injured and could be out for however long.

Offense taken. Get used to it. Most of my "blind speculation" has documented proof (since I almost always post a link citing the source). This one is simply me factually stating that Hudson isn't apparently as good with the glove as advertised and he's proving to be a hack with the bat. I believe we had this discussion before about Marcus Thames where it was listed on MLB4U.COM that the Braves were once interested in Thames before the cite was updated. I usually have a source and I list a source sorry if that bothers you but everybody I've cited as potential trade candidates are and have been rumored to be so. ;-D

considreing im from arizona:

the word before the season wasthey were very happy with his progress and were expecting to groom him to replace gonzo as his career winds down. at least until upton makes his way through the system

id be very suprised to see hudson traded. his bat may not be doin good, but him an counsel are a large reason webb has been so dominate this year

A hack with the bat? Orlando has got a hit in 14 of the past 16 games and is batting over 300 in his past 30 games, not sure you are speaking factually.

Not hard to prove. Hudson currently has a .259 avg 3HR 20RBI. He started the year batting 2nd for the DBacks and has rightfully been shunned to 8th. If his numbers stay the same they are all regressions from his last 3 seasons. Yeah, I'd call that hackish. He also already has 5 errors where he only had 6 the entire season last year.
