"Hamilton to Brewers makes sense"

I wonder what ESPN actually meant with that sub-headline

Renaming John Gibbons as manager, you're right

BJ Upton signs with Atlanta for 5 years @ $75 mil

Andy Pettite resigns with the Yankees for 1 year @ $11 mil so much for cutting payroll. Ichiro @ $5 mil for 1 year is a good signing

Jonathan Broxton signs with the reds for 3 years @ $21 mil

The cutting payroll is for 2014, and they essentially did with letting Swisher go.

I heard they were cutting costs for this upcoming season, trying to bring it below $180 mil

Braves trade Starting Pitcher Tommy Hansen for Angels Reliever Jordan Walden.

Braves had a lot of starters so I knew we would trade one eventually. I don't know anything about him, but his #s def aren't jumping out at me.

Money move in principle but with a good upside. Walden was the Halos primary closer in 2011 but last year he wasn't that great. Anyway, he's ~25 with a really high AVG fastball speed (I believe is around 97). Way better RHP signing than Linebrink, Proctor, or Durbin. He is still in arb year so his cost would be around 550K while Hanson is set to make 4M. The move leaves the Braves with 13.5M left to sign(or trade for) a LF, fill the bench spots and(or) extend some of the current guys. Great move by Wren.

I like the trade for the Braves. Walden in the 7th, Venters 8th and Kimbrel 9th is about as solid as you will get this year.

Hanson had a down year but he is still a nice #2 or great #3 in any rotation. With the Angels losing Haren and Santana, they needed this
