Right, and if I read that correctly Belliard is in the last year of his deal so FBJ's thought of him being a replacement for Hudson in the off-season isn't warranted.

At this point not really. There were some other random guys being tossed around, like Johnny Gomes for example.

Belliard had a fine season with the bat last year. This year mediocre but at least he has shown the propensity to be pretty good in the past.

It wasn't just that (though I wasn't sure of Belliard's contract status). I think that, with the way Hudson has played, he deserves an extension. I'd like to see the guy in Dodger Blue for quite a while, actually. He's a class act.

He's also 32 this offseason, so it depends how many years he wants. Also...

Are you sure you didn't get this from the Spring Training thread?

Heyman says on his twitter that we got Thome.

Now he says we got Garland too. What the **** did Ned give up for these two if Heyman isn't full of ****.
