Around The Bases will be a weekly feature just to pretty much summarize everything that has gone on in major league baseball.
It was reported on Friday the Los Angeles Dodgers have signed Orlando Hudson. It is a one year deal for $3.38 million with incentives that could make the contract worth up to $7.98 million.
There went my dreams of having him on the Mets. Unless Luis Castillo can drum up some serious interest from other teams, we’re stuck with him.
Yes Jeff, I am still obsessed with having Hudson on the Mets.
MLB.com reports the Texas Rangers have signed Kris Benson to a minor league deal. Benson, naturally, is determined to make the big club out of Spring Training.
Oh dear! A minor league deal? Whatever will Ana do? How will she promote her cheap self?
The Atlanta Braves and Tom Glavine have agreed to a one year deal. Here’s the breakdown on his contract as reported on the Braves website:
- A guarantee of $1 million and have the opportunity to earn an additional $3.5 million through incentives.
- He’ll receive a $1 million bonus once he’s placed on the active roster and separate $1.25 million bonuses if he’s on the active roster for 30 and 90 days.
- The $2.5 million he can gain via the bonuses based on his time on the active roster will be deferred over an unspecified period of time.
Why can’t the man just pull a Greg Maddux and retire?
The sign-and-trade option that the Arizona Diamonbacks are trying to swing with Juan Cruz could be happening with the Minnesota Twins.
It has been reported the Twins have already made an offer to Cruz. So I’m not too sure how this is going to work. If you have it figured out, let me know.

The hits just keep on coming for those poor Yankees. CC Sabathia has reportedly left camp because he has the flu. He blamed his children for the sickness.
That’s just shameful. Take it like a man!
