Guy had a couple of good years in Atlanta a few seasons ago but has slowly lost the touch. He's had a number of injury problems lately, IIRC.

Still, more potential arms to call upon. Not like he'll be stealing innings from some blue chippers in Charlotte.

Too bad about what has happened to him over the past couple of years. He was beyond dominant coming up through the Braves system, I thought he was a future multi-Cy Young award winner.

Good signing with nothing to lose and everything to gain.

Yeah, I thought he and Beachy were going to be a pseudo Maddux-Glavine for Atlanta throughout this decade. Bummer what's happened to them.

That said, this is a nice gamble for the Sox. I still think Hanson has a decent chance to be a serviceable starter in the big leagues.

I had to explain to a buddy what "Coop will fix him." meant today. Here's another chance for Coop to work on someone.
