It wouldn't matter how aggressive Hanny is at the plate, the guy has zero pop in his bat. I'm not talking just home run pop, I mean he never hits the ball hard. He was never a world beater so I don't know if its injury or just the decline of a 30 something catcher who wasn't much of a hitter to begin with, but his lack of slugging and athleticism on the bases is pretty tough to watch.
I know a lot of people are talking about his on-base percentage (.308 in 2008), but I like to think more in terms of him his in-scoring position percentage. - Our Beloved Manager
