Re: Pitchers and Catchers
Sandy Koufax talked about the pitcher catcher relationship a lot in his book. it sounded like he and Roseboro were on the same page almost all the time. They mostly used the shake-off as a decoy.
I think Hannigan was overlooked many times because as I have stated before he wasn't supposed to succeed. he just did. I really hope he gets a lot of playing time because the more he plays the better he hits. He will never hit for a lot of power, but he will work a pitcher. he also has hit .299 or better at every level. A good choice for the 8th slot.
He also knows all of the Reds pitchers.
I actually think he will be the regular by year's end.
