For saying things like this:

Even though they had an exceptional defensive catcher in Ryan Hanigan, the budget-conscious Reds still allocated $3 million to bring back veteran Ramon Hernandez in November.

Defense played secondary into the equation. Hernandez’s bat had everything to do with the re-signing.

You’ve got to admit, Ramon has historically been one of the best clutch RBI guys for the minimum amount of home runs the guy has hit,” Reds manager Dusty Baker said on Sunday.

Ramon Hernandez’s career wOBA in low leverage situations – .325

Ramon Hernandez’s career wOBA in medium leverage situations – .331

Ramon Hernandez’s career wOBA in high leverage situations – .330

Ramon Hernandez = Clutch.

Erik became addicted to Cardinals baseball as a young lad growing up on the mean streets of O'Fallon, MO. He moved away to Tulsa to attend Bible College, where he met his wife, who talked him into moving to Cedar Rapids, Iowa, also known as the Bermuda triangle of baseball. His dream is to see the MLB.tv blackouts end, and his other interests are theology and philosophy of religion. He is the parent of two young boys.
