That's one thing that I've really noticed about the relationship with Hanigan and the pitchers on the staff. They view themselves as a team.
For example, I watched the 9th inning of Homer Bailey's no-hitter last night, and in the post game interview with Homer, he kept saying "we" when describing the pitching performance, referring to he and Hanigan.
You cannot undervalue Hanigan on this team. He is a very important player, and I hope that he's teaching Mesoraco a lot of the things he talked about in that interview. And I hope that Mesoraco is listening. Seriously, though, how can you have two better people to teach you the craft of catching on the way up than Corky Miller and Ryan Hanigan?
