Hudson sees how 'headhunter' label could have hurt Kennedy

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- If the "headhunter" label affixed to Ian Kennedy for hitting Zack Greinke with a pitch last June was a burden, the Diamondbacks could not tell it on the field.

Six things you might not know about Ian Kennedy

Ian Kennedy had some real pretty numbers in 2011 and some less pretty numbers in 2012. Even so, Kennedy's 2012 season ended on a high note and he finished at 15-12 to give him a two year win-loss record of 36-16, which again looks very pretty.
