Hudson to the Braves/Dodgers?

Postby FatGuyWithAMullet » Sun Dec 12, 2004 5:44 am

Several newspapers, including the LA Times, are reporting that the A's and Dodgers have worked out a deal where Tim Hudson will go to LA for Edwin Jackson and Antonio Perez.

That would square with what the A's allegedly wanted - a young SP and 2B. Will be interesting to see if that actually happens.

that's freaky..why would the dodgers give up their #1 pitching prospect AND a 2b for Hudson...

If that's the case then at least Hudson's value stays about the same with him pitching in dodger stadium

this would be a good move for the dodgers trade away an unproven prospect for a bonfied ace that has proven himself. Also with the jeff kent sigining the dodgers didnt lose much .

I dont like the deal for the Dodgers. Jaskson was a great prospect and Hudson is only signed for 1 more year i believe. Seems like they gave up alot.

That's what I was thinking too. :-? Maybe they've already negotiated an extension with him or that's part of the deal, but that doesn't make much sense to give up their best pitching prospect and a 2B for Hudson.

Maybe the Dodgers feel they can sign Hudson to a long term deal. :-? Hudson has said he'd be willing to consider one if it was done before the start of Spring Training :-)

Also, as far as we fantasy players are concerned, Hudson should have more value than he did before B-) Not only does he stay in one of the most pitcher-friendly stadiums, he gets to see a pitcher every nine batters. This should enable him to lower his ERA, WHIP by 10-15% (look at what the Rocketdid this past year) ;-D

This is a great deal fro the Dodgers IMO and I bet it doesn't go down unless they have agreed on a new contract.

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

Great trade by LA assuming they can give Huddy a contract extension. Hudson will thrive in the NL and in Dodger Stadium.
