Jake, is it possible the Mariners upped their ante because of the article in the AJC ?
Yea…Griffey was traded to the Reds for a bunch of nobodies. And Mike Cameron. oh wait…
February 19th, 200910:53 pm
That is the second time in the last hour you have said Glavine was injury prone. Last year was the first time in his career he was on the DL. He has pitched over 4000 innings in MLB. In 2007 he pitched 200+ innings and had 23 quality starts. He was hurt at the first of 08 for the first time since 1988 when he came to the Major League.
Where is your argument that he is injury prone?
February 19th, 200910:55 pm
This must have been a big embarrassing incident between Hudson and DOB. The ajc, in it’s usual clumsy, ineffectual manner, has decided to erase posting until everyone forgets DOB endangered Tim Hudson’s elbow.
February 19th, 200910:56 pm
Or Coxlover they upped it becuase they realized they were a 100 loss team with a struggling franchise and they needed some kind of ticket draw besides Ichiro becuase they knew they probably would not be able to compete again this year. The figures were out there before the ajc or anyone evern broke that he would come here. They said what we were willing to pay him and what they had offered.
Blame Ken Griffey for changing his mind. I’m sorry a newspaper article would make him trump what he feels about his family.
Keylargo, obviously the fact that he’s 43 alone makes him injury prone even if he doesnt have any history of injuries.

I’m going over to the bowling blog on the Spartanburg Times. Not enough stress on this one.
February 19th, 200910:59 pm
Geez people = get a clue…I can’t believe people keep sucking up to someone who the players don’t even respect.
Hudson Has Too Much Time On His Hands
If it were NYC, I could understand a player going off on a writer who was slamming him. Happens all the time in the big market towns. Writers in those markets are brutal!
To my knowledge, DOB has never had a negative word about Hudson. Heck DOB chooses his words very carefully every time he critiques the players.
Hudson is way off base on this one. If this is who the guy really is, he’s not very bright. Maybe that option for next season should be exercised by some other team and not the Braves.
You can educate the uneducated, but dumbazz is forever!
February 19th, 200911:00 pm
Random Yeah, I tried to share my Selig-Aaron-steroids conspiracy theory with him this morning, but no go.
Okay, you have my attention and I’d like to hear more.
Could someone catch me up on the Hudson blow up? I’ve been away from the blog since this morning and can’t find more than the last 100 or so posts so I missed whatever happened.
DOB, been an interesting couple of days on the old blog. Hold your head high. It’s amazing how many cowards have come out of the shadows to cast their daggers at you. Frankly, it’s quite sickening. As I said, I missed most of today’s action but last night and this morning I saw just a few regulars condemning you for what I suspect is really not your fault. Most of those losers were either new posters or cowards that were afraid to use their real name. How pathetic is that.
February 19th, 200911:01 pm
from Lookout Landing, a Mariners blog:
It seems Braves fans are absolutely furious with David O’Brien for leaking the Griffey-to-Atlanta stuff before anything was official. They’re furious because there are rumblings that this leak contributed to Griffey’s ultimate decision. That sounds kind of silly at first, but I guess when you’re torn between family and fans, it doesn’t take much to tip the balance. I don’t know. Maybe it’s all a load of hoohah. All I can say is that Braves fans are taking the completely wrong approach, because if O’Brien’s leak really did play a part in all this, then he just saved Atlanta from a whole lot of defensive humiliation. It isn’t often you can say “I think a beat writer just made our team better.” This is one of those times. David O’Brien deserves to wake up to like three thousand muffin baskets in the morning.
February 19th, 200911:03 pm
look at the contract Griffey got from the Mariners – much more than the Braves offered and much more than the Mariners offered before the Braves were involved.
Maybe Griffey would have come to the Braves if the Mariners didn’t increase their offer. Who knows? I still think he called the Braves to get them involved/get a contract offer. It was people close to Griffey who leaked the information that Griffey had chosen the Braves. They had to have known the leak would lead to many stories which it did. Griffey then was able to deny that he had made up his mind so he could go back to the Mariners for “one last chance.” Sure enough the Mariners came through with a higher contract offer. Griffey of course had his easy way out by saying he was hurt by the leak and the story.
February 19th, 200911:04 pm
So Johnson’s girl,
They should suck up to the players they don’t respect instead? Root for the team? Yeah. Automatic respect for the player because he’s a Brave or a ML player? Not on your life! Some of those guys would probably be in jail if they couldn’t play ball.
February 19th, 200911:06 pm
Johnson’s Girl, get it straight. A person 1 player doesn’t respect. If they didn’t respect him they wouldn’t give him the time of day. Yet they come up here and blog live and Chipper doesn’t seem to have a problem with him with his quotes. Chipper said himself he felt Griffey(who he had talked to on the phone) would be a brave.
February 19th, 200911:08 pm
That is the weakest argument I have ever seen coxlover. You might take a minute away from typing your uneducated opinions and actually look at some stats.
Two posts down from saying Glavine was injury prone, you predict Griffey will increase his homerun production over last year. Where is your argument for that old geezer? Why is he going to improve and Glavine is injury prone? Do you have any idea how often Griffey has had leg problems and been on the DL? I think you might have exhausted your quota of brain cells for the day with your 100 post day.
Nice Post @ 11:01!
February 19th, 200911:10 pm
Keylargo, Griffey is several years younger than Glavine.
February 19th, 200911:11 pm
There is NO logic to Coxlover. He lost the argument. End of story.
February 19th, 200911:14 pm
I’ve always said, Lookout Landing is the finest baseball site on the blogosphere.
February 19th, 200911:16 pm
The truth on the Hudson-DOB altercation…
Hudson has been nursing his arm and had more time on his hands than he knows what to do with, so he decides one day “I’ll jam out to some classic 80’s music and read what DOB has to say on his lil old blog”
Right as he starts to strum his air guitar to “Here I go Again”, Hudson reads the most ludicrous statement ever made in his eyes by DOB. Something along the lines of Whitesnake, only be cool if you were a 14 year old girl or rocked a mullet… Poor guy is so insecure and heartbroken by these words that he decides to get in DOB’s face over a meaningless issue…and thus the beat goes on.
If Griffey wanted to be an Atlanta Brave, he would have signed with the Braves. This shouldn’t so hard to comprehend. I’ve been busting my gut reading these idiotic comments over the past few days on how the Braves were jilted, and how DOB caused this, or how F Wren caused that. The front office made a conservative offer for his services, and he didn’t bite. Good! The NL doesn’t have a DH but we would have needed a designated runner for Jr. He needs to be back in Seattle where they worship shadow sightings. I hope you enjoyed this blog, for it will be my last. (J.K. in Macon, GA)
February 19th, 200911:17 pm
DOB,Obviously this is none of my business, but it has not stopped anyone else. DOB, if you have kids you realize that they will go to school tomorrow and be told their father was yelled at by Tim Hudson. For your sake, and that of your kids(?), I really wish you would have told the emaciated munchkin to get out of your face before you kicked the crap out of him. Of course that would be a perfect world and we don’t live there. Just tell your kids that there are jacka##es in the world and sometimes those who play games really well have to be kissed up to because fawning adults with no lives worship them.
You have done nothing wrong, with the exception of laboring at a job that I guess requires you to be punked by a moron. Your employer should have your back, but once again , the perfect world thing.
February 19th, 200911:18 pm
injury prone? who dat called my name?
February 19th, 200911:19 pm
D. Obrien is full of excuses.Instead of going by a “close friend” do a little homework and get facts. Maybe the AJC should get rid of this crappy reporter.
Billy, DOB has no kids.
February 19th, 200911:24 pm
Coxlover, Could DOB have told him “Get the Hell out of my face, you skinny twit.” I guess I just have a different code of conduct. Treat everyone with great respect and expect to be treated with just normal respect. If that tenet gets violated someone has to be called out for it. I hate bullies, even punk 170 lb bullies, whose ability to throw an out pitch gives them an inflated sense of worth.
i’ll be in DOB’s corner if he wants to little Timmy approaches him again.
February 19th, 200911:25 pm
well the good news is if the AJC decides to hire new reporters, we’ve got a ton of experts who suddenly decided to join this blog
Gee wilikers, DOB is usually so gabby and quick to attack anyone that disagrees with his vitriol. Not too many posts by DOB. Maybe the ajc is erasing them, along with all the others.
February 19th, 200911:26 pm
Well, I missed out on the scoop since this POS blog doesn’t archive but an hour or two of comments!
Anyway, can we get a comment from Bobby Cox about Tim “HOT HEAD” Hudson? How is that for clubhouse etiquette you donkey. Why not reward him for bad behavior you hypocrite!
Well, I think it was very unprofessional of Hudson to call out O’Brien in front of everyone. If he wanted to speak to O’Brien he should have done so in private.
February 19th, 200911:28 pm
Ok, lets humor all the people saying its DOB’s fault. Say Ken Griffey Jr. did go back to the Mariners because of a leaked story. How does this make Griffey look good. He chose the Braves but because of a leak by someone close to him that DOB and Mr. Moore reported he went back to Seattle. Not because of his love for the city or the franchise. So if i’m a Mariners fan i’m saying if the story doesn’t get leaked he goes to the Braves and doesn’t give a crap about us fans here in Seattle. It took a leak just get him to care about us. Wow, what a guy. Wish we could have had a guy of his character on our team.
Keep gettin’ after it DOB. You are by far the best writer of any of my sports teams. By FAR!!!
DOB, one of our own,Nady, Swisher, Ludwick, Ankiel, or G.Anderson? Who’s the Braves LF come opening day?
February 19th, 200911:29 pm
DOB, how can I get a muffin basket to you?
Seriously, that was hilarious.
TnBrian, well Wren seems happy with what we’ve got so I think one of our own will be in LF.
February 19th, 200911:30 pm
DOB, I saw a clip of Van Morrison doing “Sweet Thing” live at the Hollywood Bowl – is that the concert that’s recorded for the CD? I’m not finding an awful lot of info (okay, I only clicked three google leads) on the project. Is it REALLY good? As good as the extended Zevon?
He looked awesome in concert. Didn’t he release a performance DVD last year that was highly rated? I’ve been slow cranking up a music DVD collection, but I think it’s something I might get into. I really enjoy what little I have. Do you have any Van on DVD, or know what’s best to get?
(Thought I’d ask while things are slow….)
Tim Hudson's elbow
February 19th, 200911:31 pm
I hope I’m alright.
bank of america and citi bank gone in 60 days? the same experts who singled out bear stearns and morgan stanley 6 months prior to their troubles says as much.
You can’t watch or play baseball on a blog but it looks like you can read the script from WWE sometimes. How about a no mercy match between DOB and Huddy. Using words of course. Whom ever writes the best script gets a date with Chop Chick, a famous baseball diva!
Kelly has a big Johnson
February 19th, 200911:32 pm
I heard the Marlboro Man whipped Huddy’s ass
February 19th, 200911:34 pm
If THIS is what kept Griffey away then maybe that’s a sign! Good for us let Seattle have him, what would we end up with another David Justice argument with the fans at some point in the paper?
February 19th, 200911:35 pm
Folks it’s time to move on and quit wallowing around in the mire of self-pity and criticism cause that won’t make the Kid reconsider. It’s over, and it is what it is. The 162 game season is long, and arduous. Predicting what’s going to happen during the next six months on the baseball field is as easy to predict as which stocks will or won’t do well during that span. Hope springs eternal every spring. Who could have predicted the Rockies would have been in the World Series two years ago mostly by having a phenomenal stretch run through September? Sometimes things just line up and something as improbable as the Cards winning the Series against what was considered by many a far superior Tigers team just happens. If Griffey has a great year, so be it. He’s in the other league.
If recent history of injury for players and player injury on certain teams are a predictor of future events, then the Braves and Griffey might not have been a good marriage. anyway. If Schaefer performs well and/or Heyward just has an off the charts spring who knows what might happen. We’ve got the potential for some really good players to produce and if we get a really good owner in 2011, or thereafter, who will put out the money needed to sign a free agent or two, we will be back. So sit back and enjoy the ride because spring and warmer weather can’t come soon enough for me.
February 19th, 200911:36 pm

February 19th, 200911:37 pm
So what is the details of the Glavine deal?
Also, who’s standing out so far this spring? (I know which guys are going to supplant Marie Osmond on the weight loss commercials.)
anyone tell me if DOB said the Huddy incident was with him?
all the comments are not up and didn’t get to see if he addressed that
keep chuggin along DOB
February 19th, 200911:39 pm
so does everyone think we will settle with what we have now?
Why dont you start a pole on who thinks Huddy is foolish for his actions and maybe he can read the results and see how much eveyone thinks of you. You never know he may be begging to be on the live blog.
Keep up with the good work!
Just got back in town. You must be kidding me! That skinny twerp with the crooked elbow messing with our DOB.
Hudson, take that rag arm down to Birmingham and tell Andrews to kiss it for you.
And now for 20 million rupees, who was the Masked Mariner?
Miami, yes the incident was with him.
February 19th, 200911:41 pm
can anyone paraphrase what he said about it? or did he just say that Huddy yelled at him?
Hudson in the Valley
We got your back bro. My son is 6 and his martial arts training is already enough for the Human Totem Pole.
February 19th, 200911:43 pm
Hudson tore cartilage when he turned to yell at Dave. Expect him to miss two additional months.
February 19th, 200911:45 pm
Does anyone have the details with the Hudson thing? Missed it all and would like to know what happened?
February 19th, 200911:47 pm
lol Hudson Ferry
Hey DOB, remember the opening line to the old Leon Russell classic ‘Roll Away the Stone’? ‘It’s a strange world we are living in”.
hudson must think we really need more swagger in the outfield…its too bad we spend 80+ million dollars this offseason and have yet to add one one one one single bat..i think the braves prolly only have like 2 mill to spend on a hitter so were not getting swish or nady..
February 19th, 200911:48 pm
Andrew, I hope we use what we have now, not to settle, but to get a feel in spring training/ early season for what we have. There’s nobody else, outfield-wise, to get all that upset about losing out on.
After spring, and early into the year, we’ll see not only how much outfield help we need, but also how much trade muscle we have. What if all five starters plus Hanson, Morton, Campillo, and Reyes show up looking great. With Huddy on the horizon, that’s TEN MLB-ready(ish) starting pitchers all told. Even just 8 or 9 would be a veritable log jam. Wouldn’t want to gut that, of course, but might get some outfield pop for some of it.
It just seems like a decent positioning move to wait a bit, as long as we don’t fall too far behind, which I don’t think we will.
February 19th, 200911:51 pm
We haven’t signed one bat? What do you call beastly David Ross?
February 19th, 200911:53 pm
Brutus “The Barber” Beefcake
February 19th, 200911:54 pm
TNScott….I could not agree with you more. I think that this offseason may have been a success the more and more I think about it. Furcal…injury risk and attitude issue possibly by going to second? Lowe I feel strongly turns out to be a better investment than Burnett. Griffy would have been nice sure…in a retro kind of way…but maybe Brandon Jones can get us .280 15 60. Maybe Anderson and Schafer are to good in the spring to send back to the minors and one of them becomes part of the platoon in left with Diaz.
Truth is the starting rotation has significantly been upgraded. Soriano or no the bullpen could be one of the best in the majors. I think Frenchy bounces back to a .280 20hr level. The young players on this team are very exciting. Could be the start of a another interesting 10 year run.
February 19th, 200911:55 pm
bubdylan, yea that AAA rotation looks like the should win the championship..i agree we should have good trade bait to use..plus waiting would not cost as much money..so being able to afford a better player for less.. and maybe liberty media will give us some more dough…i wish we still had the Ted owning the team..you’ve heard that he said on the today show that he really wanted to buy back the team ..
Bubdylan, exactly my thinking as well (11:48pm).
There’s no rush anymore. No one out there is worth making a move for now. Wait until we have a better idea of what we need and what we have to move and then make a move if necessary. There will be more options available down the road (that aren’t available now), either later in the spring or during the season.
johnbama, interesting that you didnt mentino peavy
February 19th, 200911:56 pm
BTW TNScott….assuming you are from Tenn. Tenn fan? If so comments on Kiffen?
February 19th, 200911:57 pm
Blame, Blame, Blame.
Sides, Sides, Sides.
With as little knowledge as the average person has, how can anyone blame anyone else about what has gone on in the Griffey deal? The same is true in regard to Huddy and David. How can anyone put blame on anyone else? Why do we have to choose sides? We know that David has had a rough couple of days and we don’t know what may have been going on in Huddy’s personal life that brought this whole thing to happen. It may have been the results of things that neither person is aware if in the other person’s life. No one in our midst would want to be judged by people who know as little as most of us know about these two guys, what was going through their minds at the time.
The same is true of Griffey. I hear the reports of what he is saying. But really, can we take that as the total truth? “Legacy” has an appealing sound to it, but both before and after Griffey made his decision I read post from this blog and other blogs where Seattle fans were saying that Griffey is a manipulator. I don’t know if I can trust them or not. I don’t know if I can trust him or not. Earlier today one person came to this blog and said that he had some information and knew for sure that the thing that held up the deal with the Braves is that Griffey wanted to have boxed seats for his family and wanted to be able to bring his kids into the dugout during games. The Braves FO balked on the first point and Bobby said no the the second. He was not going to make an exception even for a HOF. I don’t know if that is true or not. The reason I mention is that there could be many things that we would never think of that goes on behind those closed doors. I doubt we get much true information about what actually transpires. We get what they want us to get and nothing more (most of the time).
I know what I have said does not dispense your hurt nor anger. But it may help to realize that your anger does not necessarily need to be aimed at any particular individual or group. It is possible to be hurt and not let it turn to anger. And it is possible to be angry and not turn it toward someone.
I don’t have to chose David’s side to say I am sorry for the weight he has had to bear the last couple of days. If he has done something wrong, I hope he is wise enough to realize it and to learn from it. If he has not, I hope he can bear the weight and come out a wiser person and more sensitive to others who may say things that are taken wrongly (or could be taken wrongly). Whatever.
Writing to you from Seattle and cracking up! Doesn’t it make sense overall that Griffey chose to come back to the Mariners for his final years, knowing he can do no wrong here in the eyes of the fans? I was at one of the games when the Reds visited in 2007 and we cheered everything he did, even the two home runs he hit against us. The ballpark was built with a short right porch in right field specifically for him and we all still own our number 24 jerseys from when he was here. If Brave fans need someone to blame, blame us Seattle fans forflooding the Mariner offices with e mails about making sure Jr. came back here. The Mariners sold 16,000 ticket packages today, Griffey’s first day back. Pretty smart move on their part…Good Luck Braves fans, but move on!
February 19th, 200911:58 pm
I too definitely agree that a “wait and see” approach would be a good way to go in the spring. Who’s to say that Schafer, Diaz and Jones might all come around and answer all our outfield questions. Maybe it is wishful thinking on my part, but I really think Francoeur, Schafer and Di-ones are going to make us forget about last years 27 HR’s
im sorry people im lost..was it really DOB that hudson was so angry with…if so that is hilirous
February 19th, 200911:59 pm
Joe Mariner , you guys arn’t goin to win 50 games this year fag
Joe Mariner, stick to your own team’s blog. This is for Braves fans only.
February 20th, 200912:02 am
Joe mariner isn’t really a mariner. He’s a plumber and he wants to run for congress.
February 20th, 200912:04 am
way to be mature, guys
I agree that Peavy would have been a great ‘get’. I do think though that hanging on to Escobar will end up paying dividends. I also think that holding on to guys like Hernandez and especially Locke will pay even bigger dividends in the future…whether by trade or their production with Atlanta in the future.
I will agree that the offseaon in the public eye has not looked great but I really have a strong feeling that this has almost been a addition by subtraction type of time.
February 20th, 200912:05 am
wow, you guys are an angry bunch! It’s true, I am a “fag’ plumber who wants to run for congress in Georgia and date Tim Hudson…
that is what hudson said to DOB today in the locker room lol
February 20th, 200912:06 am
Most of you are freaking morons. Tim Hudson, a Great pitcher for the Braves is upset over some writer/Blog guy potentially hurting his Ball club and you guys take DOBs side? Are you Braves fans or DOB fans? Hudson wants us to win. If he really got that upset, that was the reason. Everyone was looking forward to griffey coming, DOB writes up a little premature story about how Griffey had already decided, the M’s then call Griffey and say “We’ll give you more money! Just don’t sign with the Braves!” because they are in panic mode and Griffey stops responding to the braves calls. Hudson is on a team and he wants his team to win. If DOBs report really was a factor, Hudson SHOULD be upset. As should all of you….. Well, the ones of you that are Braves fans first, DOB fans second that is…. which doesn’t seem to be any of you from what I read. I mean seriously… someone even said the Braves should pick up Hudsons option because he hurt DOB’s wittle feelings? Give me a break…..
Anyway, I’m ready to move on. I’m sick of talking about Griffey. I can’t wait to finally see the guys in action on Feb 26.
Wayne I agree again. The outfield that is in Atlanta, while it is very young, will outproduce what happened last year. I think that we could get a glimpse of several future stars.
February 20th, 200912:07 am
spotts, mature isnt coming on to a blog that you prolly dont know much about that team and trying to talk sh*t
February 20th, 200912:08 am
Joe Mariner, good get pal. Laughed my head off.
February 20th, 200912:09 am
Oromus, we can keep our Braves loyalty intact and still support David O’brien. Sorry that warps your brain, but it’s possible to do both.
I think our outfield production will be better this year. It certainly can’t be any worse. I have a feeling Francouer will rebound, which is really one of the keys this year to our success. I think our pitching has improved, especially when Hudson comes back late in the year.
February 20th, 200912:10 am
There was no trash talking on my part. I was trying to give another point of view so maybe angry Braves fans, such yourself apparently, could get an idea of maybe why Griffey didn’t sign. FYI, I probably know more about Braves Baseball than you do about Seattle, and the word is Probably, not prolly…
February 20th, 200912:12 am
DOB- I hope you kick Hudson A@@! That joke in RF got 3.5 million for nothing. We sign Glavine and give him 1 million to show up, 1 million to last 30 days, and another 1 million for 60 days, How’s that for a stimulus package? Good that Jr, the kid at 39 moved on. We need a r/h bat with some power not old age lefty. DOB you do a damn good job, some people just don’t get it.
Thanks Popeye…Some of the bloggers need to drink less…
Bubdylan, keeping Braves loyalty intact means bashing Tim Hudson for calling out DOB for his involvement in Griffey stopping talks with the Braves? Because thats all I’m seeing here. A bunch of DOB kiss asses bashing Huddy because he is upset that his club was hurt due to some shotty reporting.
I got my copy of Baseball Prospectus 2009 yesterday. Let’s see what they’ve got Diaz, B. Jones, Francoeur, Schafer, Anderson, and Blanco down for in 2009…
Diaz: 225 PA, 10 2B, 5 HR, 28 RBI, 4 SB, .282/.324/.414
B. Jones: 486 PA, 25 2B, 11 HR, 56 RBI, 9 SB, .253/.323/.396
Francoeur: 596 PA, 31 2B, 19 HR, 81 RBI, 3 SB, .275/.328/.444
Schafer: 513 PA, 27 2B, 12 HR, 55 RBI, 13 SB, .238/.308/.391
Anderson: 541 PA, 23 2B, 3 HR, 41 RBI, 33 SB, .273/.318/.352
Blanco: 373 PA, 13 2B, 3 HR, 28 RBI, 11 SB, .263/.360/.344
(Note: The number of plate appearances is always skewed in the PECOTA projections. Somebody can have a go at those numbers and predict how much each guy will play and adjust the numbers accordingly.)
February 20th, 200912:13 am
joe mariner is this you???
Chipper also said he thought Griffey would sign with the Braves. Should Huddy stand up to him too?
If Dave said that the Braves shouldn’t sign Griffey because he dresses up as a hooker and works the streets after games, and THAT made Griffey change his mind, then I think people (Hudson included) would have some legit beef with DOB.
February 20th, 200912:14 am
Does anyone think Tommy Hanson will pitch in the majors this year ?
February 20th, 200912:15 am
“DOB- I hope you kick Hudson A@@! ” – See what I mean? Lets all jump on Huddy because he’s upset that our Club lost a nice addition that could have helped us win this year…… Good Grief…
February 20th, 200912:16 am
Andrew… You need to sleep it off or at least stop drinking whatever it is you’re drinkin’
The scary thing is next year we could have a Lowe Hanson JJJ Hudson Kawa/Vasquez rotation. Or maybe a Hudson Vas or Kawa is dealt for a position of need. That does not even account for some of the other young arms we are going to see fruits from this year.
I really think that the Braves have put themselves in a great position to contend this year and a even strong position for future seasons. I am not sure the same could have been said the Griffey, Furcal and Burnett.
February 20th, 200912:17 am
coxlover, i think he will at some point, just dont know when…
spotts, what you’re not getting is that all the report did was make the Mariners panic. Griffey likely stopped talks with the Braves because the M’s saw the report and went into “We’re getting him no matter what” mode. Without the report, the Braves may have struck a deal before the M’s knew what hit them. Either way, Hudson >>> DoB
