Analyzing Hanley's numbers...

 

it's clear that contact is his big issue. He's got good plate discipline, but he's not making good contact.

 

Say what?

 

His contact percentage is not much below his career average. That's not his big issue.

 

His GB% is, however.

Hanley's Career GB/FB: 1.18

Hanley's Career GB%: 44.3%

 

 

Hanley's 2011 GB/FB: 1.89

Hanley's 2011 GB%: 57.1%

 

EDIT:

 

I don't actually even know if we can consider these numbers a bad thing, i suppose if he were hitting ground balls and finding the holes it really wouldn't be that important.

 

Obviously his lack of power contributes to the massive jump in GB/FB.

 

Wish they had a stat for GB% to infield position (1B, 2B, 3B, SS, P)
