The East Valley Tribune’s Scott Bordow reports that the Dodgers "could make a big splash in the next 72 hours."
"Don’t be surprised if the Dodgers not only sign Manny Ramirez but Orlando Hudson as well," writes Bordow. It sounded like speculation at first, but Bordow confirmed to me in an e-mail that he heard the news from a "pretty reliable source."
The Dodgers have been linked to Hudson at times this offseason, but have only admitted to having mild interest in the second baseman. The Dodgers would lose their #17 pick in the June draft if they sign Hudson, but they’re in need of a guy that can play second base every day and he’s the best man available. Then again, as some readers have pointed out, it might block the development of Blake DeWitt.
