Tim Hudson needs T-J surgery

New, comments

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution is reporting that Tim Hudson needs Tommy John surgery, which would end his season and knock him out for most of 2009.

The Braves are having problems.  However, 2009 is an option year for Mike Hampton, Chipper Jones, and John Smoltz, so if they wanted, they could strip down and go real cheap and rebuildy in 2009, with a Marlins-esque payroll (other than the $12 million they'll have to pay Tim Hudson).
