Atlanta Braves: 4 Reasons Tim Hudson Should Pitch Potential 1-Game Playoff

Tim Hudson deserves a chance to start any one-game playoff for the Braves.

After being a bit of a disappointment in the first half of the season, the Braves have seen their starting rotation pitch better since the All-Star break. The signing of Ben Sheets, the trade for Paul Maholm and the conversion of Kris Medlen from reliever to starter have been big reasons why the rotation has stepped up.

In fact the Braves have been pitching so well of late that it appears the team is set to go with a six-man rotation once Tommy Hanson returns from the disabled list. Considering the Braves struggled to find more than three solid starters in the first half and lost their best pitcher to injury, things have come a long way.

One decision the Braves will need to make is who they will start if they head to a one-game wild-card playoff. My choice is Tim Hudson, and this article gives four reasons why I believe that should be the case.
