Orlando Hudson isn't the guy you see throwing punches on the mound.
In April 2010, Hudson said:
“You see guys like Jermaine Dye without a job,” Minnesota Twins second baseman Orlando Hudson(notes) said Monday. “Guy with [27 home runs and 81 RBIs] and can’t get a job. Pretty much sums it up right there, no? You’ve got some guys who miss a year who can come back and get $5, $6 million, and a guy like Jermaine Dye can’t get a job. A guy like Gary Sheffield, a first-ballot Hall of Famer, can’t get a job.
“We both know what it is. You’ll get it right. You’ll figure it out. I’m not gonna say it because then I’ll be in [trouble].”
Hudson thinks of himself as a defender of his race, spouting off every time something could be twisted to look like an occurrence of discrimination. For his information, Dye didn't have a job because he was 36 and wanted $8 million for one season.
