    Did not see that coming so quickly. Wonder what the return was.

    A good young reliever in Jordan Walden. Would have thought the haul would have been better, but I guess the rest of the league is just as wary of Hanson's shoulder problems, velocity decline, and mechanics as we were.

    In a perfect world...

    Walden is the return. The Braves' pen will be striking out a ton of batters this season.

    Woah that was fast. Jordan Walden is a nice young righty.

    I like it. We all know Hanson has been on the decline since his rookie year and those arm issues were dangerous for a guy who was clearly in the mood to get paid via Boras. (Remember him whining about not making the Super 2 cut?). The rest of the league probably knew what was up with him and wouldn't bite when Wren called. Walden is a good arm and slots in as the new set-up man, or behind Gearrin as the 2nd RH guy. If our offense didn't keep bailing Tommy out in his mediocre starts, he was going to end up getting removed from the rotation like Jurrjens.

    I think Wren is freeing up money for another move. Nothing against Walden, but I only thought Hanson would get traded for a position player, prospect or salary relief. Looks like salary relief.

    With the bullpen problems the Angels had I'm frankly sort of surprised they traded such a valuable reliever. I guess they'd rather spend FA money on relievers than starters.

    Even though Walden is a righty, I wonder if this is the end of EOF's time in Atlanta.

    I think it is, probably trade him this offseason. How is his salary projected for 2013?

    In the payroll thread, the estimate was $3.8M.

    The speculation is that Moylan will be non-tendered. The reality is that a middle reliever shouldn't make $3.8M, which is why I speculate that EOF could be gone.
