Twins make a few additions to lineup

The Twins made a few moves today, and if the rumours are true; Orlando Hudson will be Twin very soon.  They made the Jim Thome signing official, signing the possible hall-of-famer to a 1-year deal for $1.5M.  Thome made $13M last season, and is the first player to really accept the fact that it becomes a choice, take less money, retire or play in the minors.  The addition of Hudson would give the Twins lineup a boost and defensively, would be a major upgrade over Nick Punto

Here is a look at the Twins projected lineup if Hudson does indeed sign:

1. CF Denard Span
2. 2B Orlando Hudson
3. C Joe Mauer
4. 1B Justin Morneau
5. DH Jason Kubel
6. RF Michael Cuddyer
7. LF Delmon Young
8. SS J.J. Hardy
9. 3B Brendan Harris

Bench: DJ Jim Thome, C Jose Morales, INF Matt Tolbert, 2B Alexi Casilla

Last season Thome hit .249 with 23 home runs and 77 RBI for the White Sox and Dodgers. Hudson won another gold glove, but lost his job in the playoffs to Ronnie Belliard.  Hudson in his career, playing for the Blue Jays, D'Backs and Dodgers has hit .282 with 77 home runs and 434 RBI.  Hudson is a 2-time all-star and 4-time Gold Glove winner.  Hudson became the first Dodger second baseman to win the award since Davey Lopes in 1978.
