Zach Links from MLBTR provides the following story: Royals Expecting Interest In DeJesus and Meche The reason I am interested in this story is that the Royals were one of the teams mentioned as potential suitors for Pagan.   Could there be a deal that sends the Royals a package including Pagan for DeJesus, giving the Mets a decent LF and Meche filling a backend of the rotation guy.   Total salary added would be around 16.7 million minus whatever players we trade.Now the out there idea.   Most of our readers know my lack of fondness for Orlando Hudson.   However, it appears as thought the Phillies ask Hudson to make the switch to 3B before giving Polanco 3/18. (Odds & Ends: Hudson, Pujols, Gonzalez, D-Backs) That spot is now not there for Gritty McHudson.   The Redsox were thought to be interested but then: Red Sox To Sign Marco Scutaro. That spot is now not there for True Grit.   The Dodgers need a 2B but seem to have no interest in The Grit Dawg.   Could it be possible that Hudson could be left out in the cold again?   Is it possible that his love for the Mets would allow him to come to the Mets as a utility guy that would play 2B, 3B and maybe other positions?   If the Phillies were willing to consider Hudson at 3B as a starter....
