The "Meet Richard Bleier" piece is still holding. Pina's piece has been sent deep into the coal mines.

Nah, he's good with differet types of pitches, but I gotta say, I've never seen a slugger miss more pitches in the zone than Joey does.

Anyone who can eat up innings. The team likes the top of the rotation, but is desperate for a proven MLBer to take the ball every 5 days at the back.

Good spot. That's a funny/strange little thing they do. They're obviously very close. Hanser is the mayor of every club he's on.

I think he's flown under the radar a bit because he'll still have rocky outings.

Yeah, he's a real contact-oriented hitter.

I'm an eternal optimist, so I think if he keeps hitting, he could hold down a job catching 100+ games a year for a good team.
