So we find ourselves in the middle of yet another mind-bending October. Where teams collide, rivalries renew, and pitching prospers.
Of all the things that a playoff-bound team must have in order to make a run at a World Series, is pitching.
The Atlanta Braves have got that in Tim Hudson.
Hudson's revival into the Cy Young's of today's game, such as CC Sabathia, Adam Wainwright, Josh Johnson, and Tim Lincecum shouldn't come as a surprise to us.
Pitching is the key and winning is a priority in Atlanta. With skipper Bobby Cox leaving after this last and final season, one has to believe that Tim Hudson's stuff will be at it's best.
In the season of the pitcher, it is more important than ever to keep your eye on the ball.
