I have zero concern about Hanigan. He is what he is, .275 avg, .360 obp, very little power, walks more than he strikes out, great situational hitter. I wouldn't be surprised to see a slight downtick in production from Frazier and Ludwick but I see no reason not to expect an uptick from Cozart.
As I see it, the upgrade from Stubbs to Choo, Phillips hitting in the 2 hole, a healthy Votto, Ludwick trending down to his career averages .263/.334/.466, Bruce continuing to develop and I've discussed the others. That has to be better than last season right?
