    Same is true for Hudson, he could have won about 5 more games if the pen hadn't blown games. His biggest "freshie" was the NLDS game against the Astros.

    It doesn't matter to me who is the Opening Day starter. And the logic that designating Hudson as the #1 starter makes it easier for the Braves to rest Smoltz simply escapes me.

    If you read the articles I linked you would have your answer, but just in case you can not use the links. Basically they want huddy to carry more of the load this season so Smoltz can reduce his innings and not run into the problem he had last year. The idea of moving him to #2 is it will be easier for Cox to skip him in the rotation when the schedule allows it giving his arm some rest.
