Kennedy heads to Washington

The second base merry go round continues to turn as players quickly sign now that Orlando Hudson is off the board.

Former Cardinals second baseman -- twice removed -- Adam Kennedy, 34, is the latest to catch on with a team, inking a deal with Washington.

After being released by St. Louis right about this time last year, even though he had a year and $4 million left on the three-year contract that brought him back to the Cardinals for a second go-round, Kennedy signed with Tampa where he became stuck in the minor leagues for the first half of the 2009 season. Later he was traded to Oakland where he re-established himself. Kennedy hit well over .300 for a while before eventually settling down to a .289 mark.
