Re: Orlando Hudson...
I'm really surprised the Dodgers aren't getting more attention. That's a lineup that goes 8 deep, solid defense outside of LF, and a pitching staff with a lot of talent, if not experience.
Hudson was really a great addition for them.
Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.
