Orlando Hudson Designated for Assignment

Hudson was DFA'd by the Padres today but he always lands on his feet.

Well I guess enough was enough for Josh Byrnes when it came to Orlando Hudson. Just yesterday Byrnes hinted to UT San Diego that he might be willing to eat the contracts of the sucky infield duo of Hudson and Jason Bartlett.

"I don’t know if there’s a formula," Byrnes said Tuesday. "But I think you get to a point where you say, ‘Enough is enough.’ "

Byrnes says today:

“We felt it was time to make a change,” said Byrnes. “O-Dog has been a two-time All-Star, four-time Gold Glove winner and a contributor to playoff teams, but at this point, we want to give our younger players an opportunity.”

Hudson and his twitter account were a pain in the ass last year, but this year he was quiet for the most part, especially his bat. Just like the balls thrown to him, he'll be missed.
