Petition to Stop Worrying About Tommy Hanson

I have seen far too many comments about "which Tommy will show up," to avoid this any longer. There is nothing wrong with Tommy Hanson. In fact, he has been one of the top pitchers in all of baseball this season but has been tortured by lack of good luck. I understand not every believes in the newer statistics, but regardless, Hanson's got the sixth lowest FIP in the NL at 3.14. That's ahead of Ubaldo Jimenez, in case you were wondering. Here are Hanson's stats since the start of July:

6 GS, 37 IP, 6.2 IP/S, 2.19 ERA, 1.14 WHIP, 37 K, 7 B, 5.23 K/BB, .245 BAA, .318 BABIP, 1 HR

I understand that a few starts at the end of June may have gotten you a bit worried, but please, let's all understand that Hanson has nothing wrong with him and that the Hanson that shows up almost every single start is the Hanson that all of us are accustomed to seeing. Speak up if you agree.
