For Jordan Walden
The Atlanta Braves traded starting pitcher Tommy Hanson to the Los Angeles Angels for reliever Jordan Walden.
Didn't see this coming......
1 Corinthians 16:13 Be watchful, stand firm in the faith, act like men, be strong.
As a Phils fan I always though Hanson was overrated. Good trade IMO for you guys.
I knew they were trying to move him because of his velocity and injury issues. Plus the fact that they have a ton of starters now but I did not expect it to happen already. If Walden is healthy he could really help the bullpen
It's good that we traded him. Just wish we could have gotten more for him. But he didn't have much trade value to begin with, and you can never have enough relief pitchers. JMO
I LOVE the trade.. Hanson has a lot of problems that could cause him to lose serious value quickly.. His delivery mainly will problem continue to cause shoulder problems so I really like the trade
It also clears 4 million in salary which is huge when looking for a left fielder.
Bring on the other Upton.. I also have heard they may get Victarino next
So goes the rumor mill that the Dbacks want Andrelton Simmons for Justin....please Braves don't do something stupid....
No way they are going to ship simmons. I would not rule out another pithcer being traded though.
I would say if they can prove that JJ is healthy they may be able to trade him for someone
I think he is already done with the Braves, they are going to non-tender him. They would have never got anything from him anyway.
