Hudson’s March 1 deadline

on .

In an ESPN Insider article updated today, Jerry Crasnick writes an update on Tim Hudson's March 1 deadline for contract negotiation. Hudson's current contract expires after this season, during which the Braves will pay him $6.75M. Back in November, Hudson and his agent, Paul Cohen, set a March 1 deadline for the Athletics to negotiate a contract with Hudson, because Hudson doesn't want to be distracted by it during the season. According to Cohen, the deadline still applies to the Braves. The Braves have a history of avoiding contract negotiations, although Crasnick is quick to point out that Chipper Jones' $90M extension on his current contract was finalized in August 2000. This isn't exactly news as much as it is speculation: that John Schuerholz, Cohen, and Hudson are on the phone or behind closed doors negotiating their way to deciding Hudson's future with Atlanta. My hunch is that Hudson will want to sign before pitchers and catchers report to camp on February 17, so look for something to happen in the next two weeks. All the same, don't be surprised if nothing happens until February 28, or even if nothing happens. This is only speculation, after all.
