He's got a career OPS of .665. He has 124 XBH in 8 seasons. He may be a decent defender but he's still dreck. The only reason he has a job with the Reds is Jocketty's fetish for taking in bench players with an aversion to 1st base. OK, I can maybe see giving guys like Arroyo contracts that make them hard to trade or get rid of in order to get more favorable deals or just to get them signed. But JACK HANNAHAN? UFB. Sometimes Walt just bids against himself.
OK, so you want to waste a bench spot on a no-hit SS? - fine, but a corner reserve? Pitiful.
