Hudson signs extension

I woke this afternoon to find that the Braves and Tim Hudson have agreed on a four-year, $47 million contract extension that'll keep the two parties together at least through 2009- and possibly beyond.

Here's how the deal breaks down:

- $10 million bonus after the deal is approved by "The Bud"
- $4 million salary in 2006
- $6 million salary in 2007
- $13 million salary in 2008 and '09
- $12 million mutual option for the 2010 season

I'm pleased with the way things turned out. It's a great deal for Hudson: he's "home", he's pitching for the best pitching coach and manager in the Bigs (in my humble opinion), and he's making good money doing it. The Braves are getting a great lefty, long term- without having to offer one of those "crazy money" contracts.

Can somebody please hurry this Spring Training thing along and make the season start? Now!
