Agreed. Just watching one or two games randomly should automatically forge your opinion on a player.
Maybe I will watch one at bat of Jay Bruce's next year and if/when he strikes out, I shall declare that is a strikeout machine!
Sarcasm aside, Hanley was a pretty damn good shortstop the last half of the year. If he struggles in 2008, then a change could be coming. It's not like there is a shortstop waiting in the minors, or a relatively cheap free agent that we can go out and get. Our best case scenario is for Hanley to keep improving and make himself into a solid shortstop.
