http://t.co/dHMbQOIVThe Angels have traded for Braves right-hander Tommy Hanson, CBSSports.com Insider Jon Heyman reports. The Braves will get reliever Jordan Walden, according to CBSSports.com senior writer Danny Knobler.

After trading starter for reliever (Santana for Sisk), #Angels trade reliever for starter (Walden for Hanson).
So basically the Angels traded Santana for Hanson and Walden for Sisk. What do you guys think, good deals for the Angels?

If Hanson can regain health and control, I like the deal a lot for us. Both pitchers likely need a change of scenery.
"Tommy Hanson" and "Jordan Walden" currently trending Worldwide on Twitter lol
OK, this move I like.
I like this move for both teams. If Hanson can pitch to his 2010 form again, he's lights out. Same with Walden in the Braves bullpen. If he can pitch like he did last year, then the Braves got a good reliever.
I think Angels have the higher upside because he could really impact our rotation if he's healthy. Even if it's his worst season in 2013, like it was last year, we still get a great #4/5 starter which is what we need. Or he could be one of the best pitchers in the league.
This allows the Angels to sign Grienke and one more reliever or allows us to sign two more SP and two more relievers.
I would now love the Angels to sign Grienke, Adams, and Fujikawa!!
MIKE TROUT FOR MVP!!!!!
Wow Dipoto does it again, love this trade
Walden was basically the 5th option in our pen and we traded him for the 3rd option in our rotation
Our rotation now
Iannetta trade - OK
Frieri trade - good
Grienke trade - equal to Teixera trade
Santana trade - undetermined
There was also the unexplainable Bobby Abreu incident, where he refused a trade with Cleveland because they wanted us to eat too much salary, and instead released him 2 weeks later and ate 100% of the salary (minus the pro-rated minimum)
