I tend to agree. I'd love to see Devin cash in on his potential and rest the job away from Hanigan, but if Ryan can play at this offensive level for four or five more years, I'm fine with him holding the job. I have no problem with him having a low SLG% if he maintains an OBP% over league average.
I may not be fast, but I sure am slow.
