Tim Hudson's wife compliments Mets

NEW YORK -- Kim Hudson, the wife of Tim Hudson, tweeted her gratitude about how the Mets handled the pitcher's broken right ankle Wednesday night.

Hudson will undergo surgery in Atlanta once the swelling subsides. Doctors told him he was actually relatively fortunate, given the damage that could have occurred in that area.

The Mets got to talk with Hudson extensively after the incident, since the X-ray room at Citi Field is right off the Mets clubhouse. Hudson made sure to convey to Eric Young Jr. that the Met acted responsibly on the play at first base.

Hudson was in decent spirits given the circumstances. He joked Terry Collins: "This is not how I wanted to go into free agency."

Collins said Young tweaked a leg on the play, too. But he is back in left field for the Mets on Thursday.
