Hanson's command has gotten worse with his loss of velocity, a common trait for power pitchers who can't run FBs past hitters anymore (see Lincecum, Tim). Couple that with his seemingly now chronic shoulder problems and I wouldn't be surprised if he folds. At least Anaheim's stadium will help with his HR issues.
