Tim Hudson and the Braves: done deal

Oct 29, 2009, 8:25 AM EST

Well, not quite officially done because Selig basically tells the teams not to announce these sorts of things during the Series, but as Aaron said on Monday, the Braves and Tim Hudson were talking, and now they have all but agreed to a three-year, $27 million deal.

Good deal for the Braves, as Hudson could likely have commanded $12m+ over three or four years if he had tested the open market.  Good deal for Hudson too, as he and his wife probably wouldn’t have much cared for having to sell that big old house they just built outside of Atlanta.

So: the Braves have six solid starting pitchers under contract for 2010 and a need for a corner bat.  I have this feeling that Frank Wren’s phone is going to be ringing off the hook this winter.

    Who do you trade? I’ve been thinking about it and keep wavering. Obviously, you don’t trade Hanson. Kawakami isn’t going to bring back enough. So it has to be Lowe or Vazquez. I tend to like Vazquez better, but in this case, I think you could go with which ever one gets you something better back.
    Thoughts?
