Re: Ryan Hanigan
I noticed how active he was back there, as a former plate umpire, he would have drove me nuts, but as our catcher, I like to see that instead of just sitting back and relying too much on the glove saves.
I would take issue if he scolded Masset, unless he knows for sure that is a motivator for him. Berating folks usually doesn't do much for their respect level and resultant level of trust. I'd be surprised if that went down as you said.
Of course, going the other direction, pitcher belittling catcher, apparently that's a cool thing to do if you're Mike Pelphrey.
