I think you guys are forgetting that Hudson is from Georgia and i'm sure his input was considered as well which in my book really puts Beane and the A's organization on a higher pedestal.

I don't believe that Beane took Hudson's preferences into consideration (unless he has a no trade clause). If Beane actually took a lesser offer in order to satisfy his player, Beane should lose his job.

The only possible reasons that he took less to send him to the Braves is a possible NTC and that he would rather put Hudson in the NL where he couldn't hurt them.

At first, I thought this trade was a rip off for Billy Beane, but now I've learned things about Meyer I didn't know. that K/BB ration is what sold Beane, and rightfully so. Besides, Hudson's a FA next year so the Braves only have him for a year, unless they resign him.
