Hernandez on the other hand declined last year, had defensive lapses, had attitude problems and was a team disruption. We've heard so much about the need to improve the team defensively, Hanigan certainly is an improvement over Hernandez. If I'm coach the job is Hanigan's to lose with Hernandez as Plan B.
I agree with you, Fitz. I think Hernandez won't play well, but he'll still be the regular starter.
