Well the Braves finally called up Tommy Hanson! As you know Hanson had a great spring training but the Braves wanted to give Hanson a little more time in the minors. Hanson in 11 starts went 3-3 with a 1.49 ERA, .86 Ratio & 90K in 66 1/3 IP at AAA. Hanson as you recall was at the top of my list of my first article 25 names you need to know. In an NL only league, especially a keeper league, if Tommy Hanson is available via free agency or the waiver wire GRAB HIM. He is a young starter so there will be some growing pains. Having said that worst case scenario I don't think he'll hurt your ERA & Ratio and will get you some wins and a lot of K's. Long term he can be an ace. Remember the Braves wouldn't trade him to get Jake Peavy in the off-season.

With the horrible trade by the Pirates of Nate McLouth to the Braves it does clear the way for Andrew McCutchen (another guy on the top 25 list I wrote) right now. McCutchen is batting .303, 4HR, 20RBI, 41R, 10SB, .361OBP, 10 2B, 8 3B. McCucthen has not been rushed during his development which is very important. They say that McCutchen could potentially be a Marquis Grissom. Hitters are different from pitchers and can make a big impact right away. I see McCutchen at the top of the lineup (probably batting 2nd) and in the beginning being a solid source of runs and steals. Again in a NL only league especially a keeper league GRAB HIM NOW if he's available via the waiver wire or free agency.
