Hanson looked solid today. He was just going up against Verlander. I say Verlander is the best pitcher in baseball right now.

Braves trade JJ Hoover for Juan Francisco. 24 years old, out of options will start the season in uniform... @ajcbraves: Juan Francisco has a .284 av, .331 OBP, 11 doubles, 5 HRs in 81 games and 181 PAs in parts of 3 seasons in majors, all w/ Reds.

Might remember a kid on Sportscenter who hit a 502 foot bomb at The Great American Ballpark.. He is that kid

Even though Francisco showed up overweight and had a horrible spring, I like the deal. The only things I don't like about it are: Francisco is a LH bat (Braves need RH pop), Francisco is out of options (though, this is probably the only reason the Reds dealt him, so this is a wash), Francisco is not known as a very good defender and can apparently only play 3B (long-term, I would much rather find a true LF and move Prado in).

All that being said, I still like the trade.

I am not sure what to think just yet.. Hoover is going to be a good reliever. But If Francisco can check his attitude and keep his weight down. He can be really good. Has a rocket arm.. Just wish he wasn't a lefty

Hoover does have a lot of potential out of the pen, but I think his stock was going down as his once high ceiling has been lowered from potential number 2 or 3 in the rotation to a middle innings pen guy.

With the kind of arm/pop combination Francisco has, I would love to see him try to learn LF.

Any news on the 5th starter spot? Watching the broadcast Saturday, they were discussing it on air and didn't even mention Medlen (which baffles me, because that would be my pick). I would have to assume at this point it will be Delgado, but has it been announced officially?

I know, the concept of a cab must be so foreign to these guys, not like they can not afford it.

Agreed.

Especially at spring training, it seems like teams would have a guy just to drive these great decision makers home.

There should be some punishment. Amazing there isn't.
