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?
I agree with you. Hanigan was a great catcher last year and don't see anything wrong with a Hanigan/Mesoraco tandem at catcher. I would say they would be in top 5-10 in the league.
