If Hanson's shoulder wasn't an issue, I'd go with Hanson/Kennedy. However, with gambling that Pineda will convert fine in NYY, I would rather stick with Pineda/Zimm.

Hanson and Kennedy easily. Hanson has removed that hitch in his delivery which caused the shoulder issue.

I read about that, but I wonder if the change makes him less effective as a pitcher or if it's just a subtle change? It's not really a necessary trade but I am interested in the potential for Pineda to succeed in NY and I've always been a fan of Zimmerman. Hanson on the other hand comes with some risk and Kennedy while good is likely to regress some from last year's numbers.

[quote="MadDog36"]Hanson and Kennedy easily. Hanson has removed that hitch in his delivery which caused the shoulder issue.[/quote]That's really yet to be seen/proven. We'll see if its effective, and how effective he is pitching with his remodeled delivery.

I'm taking the Zimmermann/Pineda side here.

I have to go with Zimmerman and Pineda myself. I see upside for both of those guys whereas Hanson has his issues.
