Braves lose Byrd to Angels |

The AJC says that the Braves are the “frontrunners” for Hudson, but that at least five other teams are interested. It names four: Baltimore and St. Louis (the nextrunners) and of course the Red Sox and Yankees. (The fifth would still be the Dodgers, I assume.) None of those teams has a particularly strong farm system, so if Beane wants prospects the Braves are his best bet.
