BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2014-01-02 13:00:00 (link to chat)I'm in a Dynasty League and I have Danny Hultzen, but with his injury, I am afraid to hold on to him. Should I trade him for highest offer, or do you think he can return from the torn rotator cuff? I am afraid of having another Tommy Hanson.
(Justin from Missouri)
I'd ditch him as soon as possible. (Craig Goldstein)
2013-03-19 13:00:00 (link to chat)Tommy Hanson, not Tommy Hunter. Hanson = talented but broken. Hunter (BAL) = healthy as a horse, pitches like one.
(Chester Trout from Dallas)
Yes. This. (Matthew Kory)
2013-03-12 13:00:00 (link to chat)What do you think of Tommy Hanson's chance to rebound in '13?
(Dave from Boston)
Not awesome. I like the kid, hate the mechanics. --- I haaate leaving questions in queue, but I could only go 90 today, so I'll do two more. (Paul Sporer)
2013-03-06 20:00:00 (link to chat)Do you think Tommy Hanson can be fantasy viable again with the Angels?
(Wes from Texas)
Wes, If Kazmir can potentially be relevant again, Hanson certainly can. With that said, I'm not targeting him late in drafts, wouldn't spend more than a buck in a mixed auction or $3-4 in AL-only. (Paul Singman)
2013-02-27 20:00:00 (link to chat)Do you think Tommy Hanson can get back on track with a new team?
(zissou from naples)
I think it's possible, though I have the same concerns everyone else has with the potential for injury. The park can't hurt. (Mike Gianella)
2013-03-01 13:00:00 (link to chat)Do you think Tommy Hanson's mechanics are finally what made the Braves dump him? Do you think he can rebound with the Angels?
(Henry from bar)
I think that the Braves were worried about Hanson's shoulder, though it is also curious that he entered last season with a bunch of talk about mechanical changes to kill the hitch in his momentum, but the alterations never materialized once the season started. So it is possible that he was not responding the instruction, and his high level of shoulder abduction is another potential red flag in his mechanical profile, and the combination of factors probably made it easier for the Braves to pull the trigger on a deal. But I'm not expecting him to rediscover his previous level of performance.

On the jukebox: Tool, "Schism" (Doug Thorburn)
2013-01-22 13:00:00 (link to chat)R.J., what are your thoughts on Tommy Hanson and his move to the AL?
(Dave from Minneapolis)
I'm not a believer anymore, Dave, just because of the shoulder woes. Maybe the Angels can keep him healthy and straighten out his mechanics to ease up the labor on his shoulder. I'm just not too optimistic in any case like this. (R.J. Anderson)
2012-12-11 13:00:00 (link to chat)Any chance Tommy Hanson rebounds to the pitcher he was a few years ago.
(Squidwai from San Francisco)
There's a chance in the same way that there's a chance that Scott Kazmir does and in the same way there was always a chance that Ryan Vogelsong would be an All-Star in his mid-30s, but I would imagine it would take a couple surgeries or an almost unimaginable shift in technique. (Sam Miller)
2012-11-09 14:00:00 (link to chat)Which pitcher is more likely to get back on track: Tommy Hanson or Jair Jurrjens?
(Lil' Sebastian from The Barn)
Hanson has the more promising baseline, but I fear that there is some underlying structural damage that will create an uphill battle (he has lost 3 mph from his FB in two years). I was on board with the mechanical changes that he was going to make out of spring training, but he seemed to scrap the idea early in the season and reverted back to his old delivery. I prefer Hanson in a vacuum, but Jurrjens' approach is less dependent on the heat, and his injuries are lower-body in nature, so I would give him the better odds of regaining his previous level of effectiveness (with the caveat that he was never as good as his 2011 ERA suggested).

2012-07-11 12:00:00 (link to chat)Looking to next year, who would you rather keep....Ian Kennedy, Matt Moore, or Tommy Hanson?
(Matt from NY)
Matt Moore...see Price 2009 vs Price 2010 (Jason Collette)
2012-05-07 13:00:00 (link to chat)Are you worried about Tommy Hanson's mechanics creating an injury? Do you think he'll be in Atlanta next year?
(Meathead from Chicago)
I'm not a mechanics expert. He's changed his mechanics and he's been hurt before, so I think there's a chance he gets hurt again. Whether it's due to the mechanics or not well, I don't know. The second part is contingent on how he pitches the rest of the way. (R.J. Anderson)
2012-02-20 13:00:00 (link to chat)Braves starting rotation on opening day looks like....
(Trey from Texas)
Good question. Tim Hudson just said he's going to miss the first month, so my best guess is that Jair Jurrjens, Tommy Hanson, Brandon Beachy and Mike Minor are all in there, with Randall Delgado, Julio Teheran, and perhaps Kris Medlen competing for the five spot. Wouldn't surprise me at all if the kids were to start the season in the minors because of the way that April off days limit fifth starters anyway. (Jay Jaffe)
2011-11-15 13:00:00 (link to chat)How do you feel about Tommy Hanson, Michael Pineda and Aroldis Chapman in 2012? I can only freeze seven players from my 2011 roster. Hanson's injuries worry me.
(dscala from Durham, NH)
What's the league setup and who else do you have? I think Pineda is a definite freeze, and Chapman is a guy to let go (unless it's a very deep league and your other options aren't that intriguing). Hanson is a keep unless you have some overwhelmingly good options, because if he's healthy, he's excellent, and he'll have had a lot of time to rest up. (Derek Carty)
2010-06-02 13:00:00 (link to chat)David Price or Tommy Hanson for their careers? Who you got?
(Any Scout from Slippery Slope)
Eh, Hanson I guess, if only because he's a year younger and has had better results so far. It's close, though. (Tommy Bennett)
2010-04-21 14:00:00 (link to chat)Who would you take for one year/career? Latos or Masterson? Any other young pitchers ready to take a step forward?
(George from NJ)
If I had to choose between the two for this season, I'll take Masterson. For career, Latos, but the gap isn't that wide, really. I'd go with Latos since he's younger and the scouts have been raving about his stuff. Other young guns ready to bust out? I don't know if you can consider it a break out given what he did last year but this is a big year for Tommy Hanson, and the same can be said of Brett Anderson. I'd also like to see Clayton Kershaw improve his control this season. I might be biased but I also think this is the year Max Scherzer emerges as a true front of the rotation stud. (Eric Seidman)
2009-12-29 15:00:00 (link to chat)Thanks for the chat. Here's the order in which I rank the following young SPs in projected career value - Tommy Hanson, Rick Porcello, Brett Anderson, Neftali Feliz, Chris Tillman, Mat Latos, Madson Bumgarner. I realize that guessing at career value for young SPs is a crapshoot but do you violently disagree with any aspect of this order?
(KerryFam4 from Atlanta, GA)
I'd have Feliz higher, and I'm not totally convinced the last two belong in this discussion. Porcello might be best, too. (Joe Sheehan)
2009-05-28 14:00:00 (link to chat)Drop a comp on Tommy Hanson. Ben Sheets? Chad Billingsley (stuff-wise), A.J. Burnett?
(Nate from CT)
Someone who saw him last year in Arizona threw a John Smoltz on him. (Kevin Goldstein)
2009-05-04 14:00:00 (link to chat)Where's Tommy Hanson fall on that list with Strasburg?
(YD from Ph)
Same grouping, a few slots ahead. (Joe Sheehan)
2009-05-04 14:00:00 (link to chat)If Gamel gets called up by June 1ish, what type of impact do you anticipate him having? Who else left in the minors should we be excited about seeing this year (not named Price, Weiters).
(corey from boston)
Tommy Hanson, Andrew McCutchen, Neftali Feliz. (Joe Sheehan)
2009-04-28 13:00:00 (link to chat)Do you thinkthe Braves will go with Tommy Hanson next should Reyes continue to struggle or hope Jorge Campillo can come back healthy? No need to rush Hanson in my opinion just because fantasy owners want to see him up.
(Jake from Chicago)
I'll give the same answer I gave for Wieters. You won't see Hanson in Atlanta until June 1 or so when he's no longer a Super 2. (John Perrotto)
