    He's not a prospect. It's Jordan Walden, the 2011 all-star closer and 2012 set-up man. Young, hard-throwing releiver.

    He scares me a bit. His velocity has been steadily dropping and he is only 26. When he came into the league he was averaging like 93 on his fastball and occasionally cranking it up around 96. Now he averages 89 and hits 93 every so often.

    Haha well he's your typical fireballing righty reliever. 6'5", throws 96-97, can dial it up to 101. Throws his fastball mostly, mixes in a slider and very rarely a change, can be a bit wild.

    Yes his velocity has been a concern, but hes been pretty injury prone the past few years (that might help explain the drop in velocity). We will find out in the near future if he can get back to his old velocity. I like both Walden and Hanson, but this trade was possible because of the Braves starting pitching depth. However, i believe the Angels won this trade because the value of a middle to front of the rotation starter (when hes healthy), is a lot more valuable than a good relief pitcher. I'd trade Walden for Hanson any day of the week

    Wow, read on the score the Royals originally offered Dempster 2/26 but pulled out because the price for him got really high. The ****?? Thats insane, thank god we weren't aiming for a pitcher in FA.

    Signing Laroche basically should solidify our hitting for the offseason and allow us to solely focus on SP.

    Im not big on LaRoche. I'd rather trade for a first basemen than give someone who i believe had a career year a 3 year, 30 million+ deal who is already 33. That money can be allocated somewhere else. I'd rather sign a guy like Napoli

    wow Braves obviously know something here.. now way they trade a young pitcher in Hanson who other than last year, has been a great pitcher in his young career..

    I have a feeling the Angels aren't gonna see much of him

    props to vick27m

    There are issues with Hanson's pitching mechanics, causing shoulder injuries. That is why his velocity has been decreasing. The Braves were trying to restructure his pitching mechanics, but i believe they had little to no success. Hanson is probably going to need surgery on his shoulder sadly. But i still like him as a pitcher, as i believe he is worth the risk

    If the Jays had just traded for Hanson, I would be excited, but I certainly wouldn't be jumping up and down like I was after the Marlins trade. Dropping 2mph on your fastball in one year has to be concerning.

    Nats are supposedly considering training Morse. Wonder if he would be a fit?
