Orlando Hudson still has a banner in Dodger Stadium

Leave a comment

The Sons of Steve Garvey blog has a photo up, which was apparently taken last week, showing an Orlando Hudson banner still hanging on the wall in Dodger Stadium. This despite the fact that they non-tendered him he left via free agency and signed with the Twins back in February. Maybe Jamie got custody of the ballpark’s physical facilities staff in the separation agreement.

I’m guessing the thing will be down by the time the team gets back to L.A. for next week’s home opener.

Yankees acquire A.J. Cole from the Nats

The New York Yankees have acquired reliever A.J. Cole from the Washington Nationals for cash considerations.

Cole was supposed to be the Nats’ fifth starter this year but that didn’t work out too well. He pitched in four games for the Nats, starting two, to the tune of a 13.06 ERA, having given up six home runs in 10.1 innings. That’s . . . something.

Don’t get too used to Cole on the New York roster, as this seems like one of those “give us an arm” for a couple of days deals, after which Cole will be DFA’d and will either accept an assignment to Scranton or be cut loose. Such is life at the fringes for a guy who is out of minor league options.
