You're wishcasting on Hannigan and Dickerson. I think it's more likely that one of them never sees 500 at bats in a major league season than they turn into valuable regulars.
Depends what you are expecting from Dickerson and Hanigan. Personally, here is what I feel each is likely to give you next year.
Hanigan - 400AB - .280/.350/.400
Dickerson - 450 AB - .260/.350/.435
Dickerson gets platooned versus lefties and shows some success against right handers while patrolling centerfield for the Reds most of the year.
Hanigan gets most of the catcher time and provides solid hitter with a little power. He also brings good defense to the table.
Is that really wishcasting with those two?
