It's obvious Hanigan knows what he's talking about here. I just think it's funny for people to say (paraphrasing) "Man, Hanigan sure knows baseball inside and out. Oh, BTW, he's completely wrong about Sean Marshall. He would make a good closer!"
Hanigan intelligently pointed out why Marshall is not a closer. Marshall is one of the best left-handed set-up men in MLB and I'm glad the Reds have him. But he's no closer as Hanigan outlined.
Of course, all I suggested was that Hanigan does not have indisputable baseball knowledge.
Apparently you have a thing for him. It seems very weird how narrow minded you are on this particular issue. It's as if out of nowhere, you have made Ryan Hanigan the meta of baseball knowledge. He seems very intelligent and knowledgeable, but at the same time, I am dumbfounded that after reading literally one article about his baseball acumen, that you are throwing out snide remarks simply at those who could even consider a different side of the argument.
