Let me say for the record: I'm not rooting against Tommy, he did good things for us early in his career. But I was more concerned that no other team would want him and we'd be stuck with him like Jurrjens in 2012, and watch yet ANOTHER guy kill his remaining value before Memorial Day.
Mannnnnnnnnnnnnnn... So as I was saying.Hanson also has had back issues for at least past couple of years. RT @sox_fan9: @ajcbraves all related to shoulder??
I honestly would not wanna give up EOF, he's worth the 4 million. He has been too perfect for us. Id rather give up Venters first.
I am happy and sad at the same time.

Again, Wren is amazing! That was a huge return, Walden is controlable til 2016, he wil either be a great 7th inning guy for us this year and a bakup plan in case Eof wants to much in the near future, or , he could be worth a ton at the trade deadline this year or the next. The Dimondbacks want pitching, how bout Delgado, walden , and they can take pasternacky too, for justin upton. Then we just let simmons leadoff.Pie in the sky but still having walden is way better than owing hansen for another year of could be good but not. Saves us the 4 mil now to use for a real outfielder as well.
ps i dont wanna look at the flyin hawian this year please let it be pagan somhow.
and about EoF getin a big salary, he is also a lefty who eats batters avgs alive... we dont need to save money when it comes to lights out guys on our team, we save that 4 mil by trading Big red. hell, depending on how much, id like them to resign durbin. he did very well for us last year. with the rotation we have , if we can make them only need 6 to 7 inings a game with all the arms we have n the bullpen, the wins should be piling n fast n furious like.
And to go along with "O'VentBrel", we can pair this kid with Martinez to create... "WAL-MART."
Anybody? Hello? Nevermind.
Just go with Gearo'ventbreldenez.
I loved Tommy Hanson when he came up but its a good deal to free up the dough for a pitcher going in the wrong direction. I hope he regains some of his form in 13 but I know the front office is also thinking about what just happened with JJ.
