Will Huddy stay?

MLB Trade Rumors doesn't make it sound great...

Braves pitcher Tim Hudson is expected to choose free agency "barring a last-minute, knockout offer from the Braves," according to Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports. Rosenthal says the Braves are likely to exercise their half of Hudson's $12MM mutual option for 2010, but Hudson would rather decline his side and seek a larger guarantee. Hudson is projected to fall just short of Type B status, and if that holds up there would be no point to an arbitration offer.
Generally I say rumors are rumors, but I do trust the tiny Ken Rosenthal over most other sports journalists. I wonder what's happened in the talks in the last couple of weeks?
