“I’m ahead of where I was last year. From a conditioning standpoint, I’m in better shape than last year.”

Hudson gave up one hit, struck out one and walked one in San Francisco's 4-3 loss to Milwaukee.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

"I just started my workouts yesterday, which is kind of crazy to me. Just two weeks ago I was still playing and here I am having to get back ready for next season again.

"I guess that's the price you pay when you play that late into the season come playoff time. But I'm going to work my tail off this offseason to get ready to go on to spring training in as good a shape as I can be and hopefully finish [next] season strong. It's been an unbelievable career for me."
