If you batted Hannigan 2nd, his OBA would likely dip 40 or so points.
I beg to differ.I believe he would get more pitches to hit,and he makes contact.It is funny to me that we hate bunting ,yet are ready to sacrifice Hanigan's batting skills just to supposedly keep the pitcher from leading off???
Just when I thought I was grasping sabermetrics..........
