W/ the contracts to Votto, Phillips, Bruce, etc... if they can save a few bucks on the backup catcher by putting in a solid defensively in house option it would really help w/ the pay felx.
anywhoo, I guess my point is, we may not have that many opportunities to watch Hannigan on the base paths in front of a Hamilton triple.
The Reds own the rights to Hanigan through the end of the 2014 season. I have a feeling they'll be on the same field together at some point.
