Put the Thomson rumors to rest

on .

According to David O'Brien, a columnist with the AJC, John Thomson has elbow tenderness. If John Schuerholz can trade a 32-year-old pitcher with a tender elbow and a $4.75 million salary, coming off a 4-6 season in which he missed three months with a freakish finger injury that no one had ever seen in a pitcher, well, then Schuerholz would cement his status as the greatest trader in baseball today. Wonít happen. Had a scout tell me today before the game that unless and until Thomson comes back and pitches healthy for several starts, at least, no other team will even consider dealing for him now. Well, the rotation looks like it'll be Hudson, Smoltz, Ramirez, Sosa, and Davies.
