He hit .275/.380/.422 against them in '95.
Let's not start this argument again. There's no telling what Viciedo will do this year. As a realist, I'm expecting a slight improvement.
My only real concern is if Hahn is penciling such a flawed and increasingly expensive hitter into the 1B/cleanup spot after Paulie leaves, as that would be a huge step down.
Much more concerned about going into the season with 2 rookie catchers than anything Viciedo does at this stage of his career.
