Hanson traded to Angels WTF???

RE: Hanson traded to Angels WTF???
As a Braves fan I am only kind of surprised about this. Ive seen his named mentioned before as possibly leaving in a trade. I wish him nothing but the best in LA. I do think something is wrong with him. Once he hurt his shoulder his velo really dropped off and so he couldnt overpower people anymore. The year he came up he sat in the mid to upper 90's. This past season his fastball sat at 89-90 and hes only 26(Could be his unorthodox delivery). Big red was one of my favorite players but this makes room for Teheran!! or Delgado lol.

I was shocked at how lopsided this trade was. I'm sure Atlanta could have squeezed a little more than Walden out of the Angels. My only hope is that Walden will flourish in ATL, I have a ton of his stuff that I'm just sitting on because it's worthless right now lol.

I thought of you when I read this too. It sucks to have your favorite player traded. I went through this in 2004 when the Sox traded Nomar. However a couple of Nomar injuries later and a World Series for the Sox sure helped ease the pain.

I collect Hall of Fame baseball player cards and cards of current and retired superstars.

I guess the trade makes sense for the Braves in the sense that they have excess pitching and can give a shot to one of the younger guys BUT shouldn't a young SP like Hanson bring back more in a trade than just a reliever???

Tommy Hanson's is a mess, he was gonna be non tendered possibly. Them getting a 25 year old stud reliever for a guy who's arm is an absolute disaster is a great get for the Braves and they save money.

Unless Hanson has surgery and is able to recover, his days of being good/very good pitcher are over.

The Braves bullpen is now lock down amazing

Avoid madhatter74! The rudest and most unreasonable members I have EVER met on these boards!

If you do not have more than 25 trades, you are sending first! Or else,
sorry!
