"Much less" is stretching it. Hank had to carry us into the playoffs, like every year. And we made it with the smallest of margins. I'm not so sure Biron would've started that many games in the last stretch. Was this Hank's best season? I don't know. It was a strong one for sure, but he's had some pretty excellent seasons before as well. An elite level level of consistency is what makes Hank great after all.
