Tim Hudson agreed to a $28 million, 3-year contract with the Atlanta Braves yesterday, giving the team a wealth of starting pitching and setting up a likely trade to bolster the offense. The 34-year-old Hudson could have returned to the Braves under a $12 million option, but the sides focused on a longer deal after the righthander showed he had overcome major elbow surgery. His new deal calls for salaries of $9 million in each of the next three seasons, and the Braves get a $9 million club option for 2013 with a $1 million buyout.

Move over, Andruw Jones. The fans in Willemstad, Curacao, may have a new favorite son. Jair Jurrjens pitched three-hit ball for seven innings, striking out Jones three times, and Atlanta beat visiting Los Angeles, 6-1, yesterday for their first sweep of the Dodgers in 8 years. Jones was only the second major league player from Curacao. He followed Hensley Meulens, who played for the Yankees from 1989 to '93. Jurrjens said he was a bat boy when his older brother and Jones played in an amateur league in Curacao.

Excerpt from a post by David Murphy on the Daily News Phillies blog, High Cheese, at go.philly.com/highcheese: THE PHILLIES got a taste of Derek Lowe in the playoffs last season. Now, they will get to see plenty more of him this season as the Atlanta Braves finalized a 4-year, $60 million agreement with the veteran righthander. It is now apparent why the Phillies never seemed to be serious players for Lowe, despite their interest in bringing the sinker-baller to the friendly confines of Citizens Bank Park.

THE PHILLIES juggled their rotation in order to have their three horses lined up to face the Braves. Atlanta, on the hand, last night turned to a kid who had never pitched in the major leagues. In the throes of a playoff push, the Braves were forced to start Brandon Beachy, an undrafted righthander who hadn't pitched in a game in 17 days. Beachy got the call when Jair Jurrjens was scratched because of an injured knee. And the kid did OK. But, this being September at Citizens Bank Park, OK for an opponent often isn't good enough.

Dread-gate It's hardly a buzz cut, but two weeks after he was traded to Hollywood, Manny Ramirez finally decided to comply with Dodgers manager Joe Torre's wishes and get his famous dreadlocks trimmed. The barber took off only about an inch around Ramirez's shoulders on Thursday, but it was enough to be able to read his name on the back of his uniform. Shorn of his locks, relatively speaking, Ramirez promptly went 0 for 3 with an intentional walk in the Dodgers' 3-1 win over the Phillies.

SECOND BASEMAN Robinson Cano has received a "significant" offer from the Yankees, according to general manager Brian Cashman. "We've made an offer to him. We've made a significant offer to him," Cashman said Thursday, though he refused to elaborate. The GM was under the impression that managing general partner Hal Steinbrenner had said as much to reporters earlier in camp. But Steinbrenner merely disclosed that there had been a preliminary discussion with agent Scott Boras about his client.

Guys like Junior Griffey seem to go right from the senior prom to the majors with nothing in between. Guys like Trevor Plouffe take a bit longer. A first round pick of the Minnesota Twins in 2004, Plouffe was called up three times and sent back just as many. The only reason he was still in Minnesota on May 14 was because the Twins would have had to put him on waivers and risk losing him in order to send him back to Rochester. On that May 14, Plouffe was hitting .133 with one home run and three RBIs.

CLEARWATER, Fla. - Remember that famous optical illusion? The one that looks like an old woman or a young woman? Google it. Stare at it. Picture it in your mind. Got it? Good. Now, do the same thing with the Braves' roster. Because with 3 weeks to go before Opening Day, it is impossible to form a definitive opinion on what to expect out of the Phillies' most recent National League East rivals. Do you see a team that has entered the last two Septembers in position for a playoff berth?

With the injuries to the Atlanta Braves staff, righthander Derek Lowe should become even more vital in the postseason. That has to give Braves fans cause for concern after his performance in Monday's 9-0 loss to the Phillies at Citizens Bank Park. It wasn't just Monday's showing but a seasonlong bout of inconsistency that makes Lowe a major question mark. Known for his ability to be an innings-eater, Lowe allowed seven runs (five earned) in five innings, walking four and striking out four in the opening of a three-game series.

Jurrjens (13-5) allowed eight hits and walked five. The Cubs stranded 11 runners in the first six innings. Uggla reached 30 home runs for the fifth straight season.

THE BRAVES keep coming up with new things to throw when they celebrate. This time, they went with the resin bag. "I tried to get away," Martin Prado said, breaking into a smile after his two-out single in the 11th inning gave the Braves their second straight last at-bat win over visiting San Francisco, 2-1, last night. "They got me with dirt, the resin bag, everything. That's fine. It's a great win for the team. " Randall Delgado had already dressed by the time the Braves won, but he sure did his part.

Two weeks ago in this space, the Phillies - as if they hadn't been paying attention - were informed that a great opportunity lay before them heading into the all-star break. If they could bear down and win 12 of the 18 games remaining until the break, that would launch them into the rest of the schedule with a 57-34 record and require them to do nothing more than play .500 ball the rest of the way to reach a baseline of 93 wins. That kind of push would also, no doubt, put some distance between the Phils and their rivals and essentially secure the division title without drama.

ATLANTA - Chipper Jones hit a two-run homer, Jair Jurrjens earned his NL-leading 12th win, and the surging Atlanta Braves beat slumping Colorado, 9-1, on Wednesday night. Dan Uggla added a two-run homer in the eighth, and Jordan Schafer had four hits for the Braves, who have won eight of their last nine, including three straight over Colorado. Jurrjens (12-3) allowed one run, five hits, and two walks in six innings. He has allowed no more than one run in four straight starts, leaving his NL-leading ERA at 1.87.
