Hudson Addition Fills Two Massive Holes for Twins

MLB: Arizona Diamondbacks at Los Angeles Dodgers
There's real reason for optimism, as the Twins sign Orlando Hudson to file huge holes at both 2nd base, and the 2nd position in the batting order between Span and Mauer. In one move they instantly got significantly better in two critical areas.

The bad news? Our friend Nicky Punto and his .200 batting average is finally out of the picture as a full time second baseman. We're not completely out of the woods yet, though, as he'll be in the mix for 3rd base until (hopefully) we sign an additional player.

This is a huge move, and gives us lots of reasons to be optimistic this season. If our pitching can hold, this lineup should be able to put up some good runs.

Man, is spring here yet?
