Furcal, Hudson will play next two games, Mark Loretta will play 1B

Torre said he wants Furcal and Hudson playing together the next TWO games, because Saturday’s game is in Tucson, and he doesn’t want Furcal sitting on a bus that long because of his history of back problems. That’s a fringe benefit for Hudson, who, because of the fact that Torre wants them playing together or sitting out together all spring, won’t have to make any Tucson trips. Loretta will play 1B at the Giants today because Joe wants to get a look at him there as a possible sometime-replacement for Loney against a tough left-hander or if Loney needs a day off. Loretta has made 197 career appearances there, but only two last year.
