ATLANTA The belt hangs in Tim Hudsons locker in the Braves clubhouse, black leather with silver adornments, a WWE-style trophy proclaiming its owner the A.B.F.L. (Atlanta Braves Football League) Heavyweight Champion.
Its a title Hudson has held onto the last two years as the winner of teams fantasy football league, but his streak and his season ended with a loss to closer Craig Kimbrel in the third-place game.
Hudsons reign may be over but another title has been bestowed upon him. With the retirement of Chipper Jones, the 37-year-old is now the senior-most player on the Braves roster.
Yeah, its kind of funny, Im the oldest guy on the team now, Hudson said. I still feel like Im one of the guys. Im young at heart even though Im a little long in the tooth. I still feel like I can go out there and hang with the young guys even though Im not a young guy anymore.
With 14 major-league seasons under his belt, including eight in Atlanta, Hudson has become one of the teams unquestioned l...
BEST OF MAXIM
Team USA planned on featuring more Atlanta flavor on its roster in the upcoming World Baseball Classic, but the list has been whittled down to one: Craig Kimbrel.
After initially accepting an invite to the club, starter Kris Medlen, whose historic run last season catapulted him into the upper echelon of National League pitchers, informed Team USA manager Joe Torre that he will not...
dancing in BP, generally being awesome
It's comforting to know Prado's former teammates love him as much as the fans do.
Sad to see everyone's fav teammate go, but all smiles as a pitcher looking over my shoulder! Can't wait. #Braves

The debate rages on whether or not the Mets should forfeit their first-round pick, the #11 selection overall, in order to sign free agent Michael Bourn. Those in favor of the move point out that Bourn would address a major need for the Mets while those opposed think the club is unlikely to contend while Bourn would be good and that the club would be better off continuing its youth...
The last remaining right handed outfielder has signed with the Rangers, it's been reported that Jeff Baker has agreed to a minor league deal with Texas. Now I'm not saying Baker would be an improvement over who the Mets have but like I've been saying all along if you can't make a significant upgrade then bring in multiple candidates to compete for the positions...
Chad Durbin to return
Pending a physical Chad Durbin will return to the Phillies bullpen for the 2013 season. Durbin who was a huge part of the Phillies in 2008 had a solid season last year with the Atlanta Braves. With the Braves Durbin posted a career high in appearances posting an ERA in the 3′s. Durbin is getting a one-year deal with the Phillies.
Great move for a bullpen that...
Tweet The Arizona Diamondbacks had seemingly pondered the idea of trading young, talented outfielder Justin Upton forever. Last week it finally happened. Arizona shipped Upton to the Atlanta Braves in a trade that included the super versatile Martin Prado heading the opposite direction. The Braves now boast one of MLB’s best outfields with Jason [...]
The Mets may or may not be interested in free agent OF Michael Bourn. It is safe to say the amount of interest has to do with how much of a chance the Mets have of having their first round draft pick in this year’s draft (11th overall). While Bourn would give the Mets a major league outfielder they do not have, there may be some questions about how a player who relies solely on...
