And to Maker....do some research...how many MLB catchers out there are great defensive players AND above average hitters? Nearly ALL catchers in the majors are either below average at both or excel in one and well below average in the other. Hanigan has a fairly long history of being a solid hitter. Very limited power, but far from an easy out. I don't see that skill simply disappearing. But even if it does...his defense alone makes him a quality catcher as he's quite possibly the best defender in the league (certainly top 5).
i dont care about past stats i just care about what the player is doing for you right now and he is a black hole in the lineup with still good defense but Mesoraco is just as good defensively with a stronger arm
