Hannahan deserves a shot at this point, might as well see what he can do. It can't get significantly worse.
He was decent in Cleveland as a platoon guy when he was surrounded by subpar talent and playing most games in pitchers parks in the AL Central. Hopefully Dusty gives him a reasonable chance.
thatīs a perfect example that a manager canīt do his jop in everyoneīs favour... if frazier plays lots of complaining because he sucked the past weeks
if he is out and his replacement (hannahan) plays, itīs stupid because todd has more power...
A lot of short fuses when the Reds aren't playing well...
Either way, Hannahan had 12 homers in about a years worth of ABs in his 2 seasons in Cleveland in a pitchers park. Not really a siginificant difference, you don't have to hit it 450ft like Frazier and Wily Mo.
He's looked bad this year but until you give him a shot you don't know what you have. I believe he's signed for next year too, so now is the time to take a look.
Where have you gone, Mr. Scott Rolen? Flava Fraz ain't the player we thought ... no, no, no.
Agree that moving mes up was good...but still don't get dusty writing in a weak bat at #2.
