Span is a good player and a reliable outfielder, he'll help that team. With a full year out of Harper and Strasberg that team should be really tough next year.

It also gives them flexibility on what to do at first. They have the option of either throwing Morse at first, or re-signing LaRoche and trading Morse away.

Meyer is a nice prospect, 6'9" RHP that throws upper 90's. May end up as a closer though.

Good trade for both teams.

The Pirates have signed Catcher Russell Martin to a 2 yr/17 million dollar contract.

Pretty good signing for the Bucs. Nice to have a catcher who can get on base and provides a bit of power.

Very happy with the signing. I'll take anything over Barajas after last season.

The Braves have traded SP Tommy Hanson to the Angels for Closer Jordan Walden.

I'm sorry, but this trade makes no sense to me from the Braves perspective.

They give up Hanson, who despite injuries is still good for a Closer who throws hard. The Braves already have one of those.

I wouldn't say he's good. His FB velocity has continually dwindled down, which could be explained by his shoulder, but who's to say that he'll remain healthy? All of his other numbers have been continually getting worse; he's walking more, giving up more home runs, and his ERA/FIP/xFIP (whatever you like to look at) has continually gotten worse. He can still be solid, but at this point he might not be any better than Teheran/Delgado, whichever one they decide to call up (though neither have been very impressive in the majors, but they're still very young).

Part of me is basing this on how horrible he was against the Marlins as well. Somehow the Braves managed to win those games he pitched, but he was walking batters left and right and got bailed out continually by the Marlins' terrible offense. Just looked up the numbers and in three starts he walked 12 batters and gave up 15 hits in 15 innings.

Baseball players tend to carry more weight during the off season plus he's dealing with a broken ankle, so he's immobile.
