I've watched Hanigan catch for years. I saw Johnny Bench catch too. Want to take a guess why Bench is in the HOF and Jim Sundberg isn't? Because they both played amazing defense.
You and I and everybody else knows that eventually Mes is taking this job (provided he plays well). He needed to shore up some of his defense behind the plate. Supposedly he's spent all winter working on that and it's looking good. And he needed to get his bat going. In ST it's going and if that continues into the season then there's not going to be much of an argument against playing a big hitting, solid fielding catcher.
