Hani-ger! Hani-ger! Hani-ger! Is how I chant the Mariner outfielder’s name, reminiscent to another breakout in history. But, was it really a breakout? I mean… he was healthy. Yay! But, the numbers themselves were exactly the same. Is this real life? Oh is it ever! And we have some juicy nuggets to share with you that’ll make you walk around chanting Hani-ger! Hani-ger! Hani-ger! yourself. Watch, learn, comment, discuss. Then go watch another one of these little camera experiments we’ve been throwing together, only go watch another player. (They’re listed below to make life extremely easy on you).

    Like Haniger. And if somebody takes him right before you in a draft, can just pivot to the next OF in the draft, Eddie Rosario, who looks a lot like him on paper. Like Haniger a bit better, Rosario with a better home park.

  2. Ian says:

    Seriously….Just follow your posts and Razzballs targets and I’m draft ready in dynasty and otherwise! Thanks!
    Wondering whether there is any future in keeping Newcomb in dynasty?

    • Andy Singleton says:

      @Ian: Thanks, Ian! Newcomb will have a chance just on the basis of what he throws, and the side he throws it from. What your options are would depend on how I view him. Ownable, but if I could get something, not a must hold for me.

    I like him but didn’t realize he was going quite that high.

    Also, did Ralph pronounce Christian Yelich’s last name as “Yeh – Lick”?

      @SwaggerJackers: Yup! Hahaha I’ll forever say it that way. I alternate Dev-ers D-vers too

    Alexa’s favorite baseball player is Mitch Haniger. Don’t believe me? ask her who her favorite baseball player is!

    • Justin says:


      That’s hilarious. Alexa has a wider range of baseball knowledge than I thought. I’d figure something more mainstream like Clayton kershaw

    Thanks for the Mitch Haniger piece. Love your thoughts on him, some really good numbers I didn’t know about there. I’ve got him on one team, will definitely target him for my other two.

    My only problem with Mariner Mitch is where he’s playing. Seems like the Mariners should just commit to the rebuild fully and trade him like they have the rest of their roster. He’s going to end up like Realmuto, playing for a crappy team and being very unhappy.

    Would love to see the Dodgers whiff on Harper and call up Jerry Dipoto and work out a deal. Hell, I don’t know why the Dodgers and M’s aren’t already in trade talks! Haniger would be a solid corner OF option and much much cheaper than B-Harp.

      @Harley Earl: Do you think the current Seattle lineup is as bad as Miami’s last season?

      • Andy Singleton says:

        @Ralph Lifshitz: Not even close! Tweeted this morning 9-5 aint too shabby…

        9 – Dee
        1 – Mallex
        2 – Haniger
        3 – Bruce
        4 – Encarnacion
        5 – Seager

        Working 9-5… it’s all takin’ and no givin’

    Grabbed Haniger in the 24th round of a keeper league last year. Looks like it’s time to finally throwback Goldy at rd 2. Good move?
