I don't know. Phillips is decent. Cozart might be. Hanigan gets the most of what he's got, but it only makes him passable. Mesoraco might be good. Rolen's best days are behind him though. Ludwick's maybe as well. Stubbs wasn't ever a good hitter in the minors or college and Heisey and Frazier are bench players. They at least need some guys who can fill a niche with a platoon advantage here and there but the lopsided roster is killing them IMO.

Having better players makes "the right time" or "the big hit" happen a lot more often. PLUS PLUS
