It seems to me that everything I've heard from the organization and other circulating Twins rumors, is that O-Dog wasn't particularly liked in the clubhouse. Okay, so the guy was a little bit more outspoken and loud than middle infielders before him who trotted out in a Twins uni, but does anyone else find it a little bit odd that you haven't heard his name connected with ANYONE this offseason?
The reason I bring this up is because I wanted to see hear what people would think about bringing back O-Dog in 2011 as a reasonably priced FA utility infielder to give our middle infield some depth? What do you think this would cost us? Who else could we potentially be looking at (Tolbert, Plouffe, and Hughes all seem like shaky options to me).
I realize that bullpen is definitely our most gaping hole at the moment, but just wanted to throw this topic out there for discussion.
p.s. I am not super familiar with how the arbitration process works, so if the fact that we offered him arbitration has any impact on this scenario, someone please feel free to educate me
