It's not spell check...you didn't know how to spell his name, much like about 20% of this board.
He calls a great game. He frames the ball as good as any catcher I've ever seen. How did everyone else handle Chapman? No coincidence that nearly every time guys like Arrendondo and Simon struggled it was with Hanigan not in there. Controlling a staff of guys like Cueto, Latos, Homer and Chapman...talent amuck but those guys need the hand holding and encouragement and no one seems better at it.
He also had a great year keeping would be runners from advancing.
No way am I saying that Cueto, Latos, Phillips, Ludwick and Bruce are poor choices or even wrong....but we won a ton of low scoring games and he was managing perfection behind the plate. No one was overwhelming on this TEAM...he gets my vote.
