    Can confirm that #Angels are acquiring P Tommy Hanson from #Braves ... it appears reliever Jordan Walden will be going to Atlanta.

    The 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 is arbitration-eligible for the first time this year. He is a Boras client. #Angels

    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!!!!!

    I guess there won't be an internet vote-campaign to choose Walden's entrance song this year.

    Hanson is a fly pitcher and he's coming to Angel Stadium which is very kind to fly ball pitchers. In addition, he has Bourjos and Trout roaming the outfield. I like this trade.

    I can't recall what he did in the first place, other than spend the owners money to obtain the two most expensive FA's on the market, and completley ignore a horrible bullpen that more than likely cost us a postseason opportunity.

    However, I do like this trade.
