Hudson's ERA last year:
As he got stronger as the year went on, he actually improved.
He pitched great in the majors, certainly better than any other pitcher we had.
He was finally healthy for the first time in a long time, and it showed with improved command and control. He's always had the stuff, but injuries took their toll over the years.
He certainly wouldn't be the first pitcher who got it together at age 27.
