Another Nice Thing About the Tim Hudson Trade

Another nice off-shoot of the Tim Hudson trade is the fact that now the Braves have no interest in acquiring Kevin Brown from the Yankees. Brown is from Georgia and the Braves are one of the only teams Brown would waive his no-trade clause to join.

Combine that with the fact that not many teams would be interested in taking on the 39-year old, hot-headed pitcher even if the Yankees picked up the entire tab - this means Brown gets another summer in the Bronx. Just being around- Brown will be disruptive to the pitching staff and the team. I would think that the Yankees would prefer a rotation of Johnson, Mussina, Pavano, Wright and El Duque to any rotation that includes Kevin Brown.

Heh heh.
