2012 Post-season / 2012 Reds

Ryan Hanigan

All of us here at Redleg Nation are HUGE, HUGE Ryan Hanigan fans. (Personally, he may not be my favorite Reds player, but he’s in the top 2 or 3.)

Undrafted FA who fought his way up through the organization and is now one of the best catchers in the game….

John Erardi has an absolutely brilliant article/interview with Ryan Hanigan.

Take the time to read it, you won’t be sorry.

  1. Nice article and nice feel good story. I think some fans tend to regard him too much as an offensive player because he hits too well despite pitchers always raving about his ability to catch and call games.

    • What a manager that guy will make. Can’t wait to see it!

      @Jared Wynne: Agreed. Other than the not being able to wait part. I look forward to watching him catch for many years to come.

      How many catchers can say the called a no-hitter?

  2. I’m hoping Hanigan gets to catch strike three of the last out of the Series. A 2-2 low fastball that he frames perfectly. . . that would be fitting.

  3. WJ’s extension of Hanigan was a great move. I love the way Hanigan handles pitchers, gets them to focus, sets a target with confidence. His throwing out would-be base stealers, especially those trying for 3rd, has helped the Reds “big time”.

    Also, next to Joey, he has the best strike zone discipline of any Reds hitter.

  4. I remember when Hanigan came up for just a few ABs in 2007. He hit better than I expected, and I’ve liked him more and more ever since. How about that HR against Sabathia ? Turned that game around.
