I'd just watch his WHIP during ST and if its reasonable I'm buying Hudson cheap.
I like Hudson this year too.
Let's not forget one thing......He pitched the last 2 years with absolutely no bullpen. Which means 2 things. 1- He missed out on quite a few wins with the pen blowing leads after he left the game; and 2- A lot of times Bobby Cox left Huddy in the game far longer than he should have, considering he had absolutely no faith in his bullpen. Yeah Huddy got ripped a couple times early in the game, but many times he would be solid through 6 and then get hit hard late. Guess what......this year in Atlanta......it's a 6 inning game for starting pitchers. Soriano in the 7th, Gonzales in the 8th, Wickman in the 9th. Good night.
Though I like Buerhle to come back a little, give me Huddy in the NL and with that bullpen.
