Orlando Hudson is still a possibility for the New York Yankees? He said that he wouldn't have to change positions, so this really doesn't make much sense. Robbie Cano would have to be traded or he would need to move to CF, which is highly unlikely. It would make more sense to platoon him in center field over Melky/Gardy. I don't think they are highly involved in negotations with him, but you never know. Take it for what it's worth.

Check out the video clip here..

from MLB Trade Rumors:

Free agent second baseman Orlando Hudson appeared on the MLB Network today.  Barry Larkin asked which teams he's talking to, and he named the Dodgers, Mets, Yankees, and Nationals.  None of the teams have said anything to Hudson's agent about changing positions.  Hudson says right now he sees himself as a second baseman.  Ken Rosenthal says Hudson "seems to be banking on [the Mets or Yankees] pursuing a creative solution."

Hudson, 31, hit .305/.367/.450 in 455 plate appearances for Arizona last year while earning $6.25MM.  Based on the plus/minus system, Hudson did not flash his typical stellar glovework in ‘08.  The market for Hudson has been held down partially because he is a Type A free agent who turned down the D'Backs offer of arbitration.  That means whoever signs him will give up a draft pick.  Another factor may be the broken wrist he suffered in August.
