Hanigan is fantastic .. very happy w/ him as a number 1 :thumbup:

mesoraco .. unproven .. :confused:

why did we allow navarro to leave ? :confused:

he was a switch hitting, spanish speaking catcher, 28 years old ..

in my opinion he was more valuable then mesoraco

who else do the reds have if they were to trade mesoraco ?

There's always Corky who can come up in a pinch, but he's too valuable to be away from the minors for long stretches of time.

Long term, there's Tucker Barnhart, but he's years away.

If they traded Mesoraco, they would absolutely need to bring someone in. I would imagine they would demand a catcher as part of the return.

I don't think he gets traded unless another team thinks he's the next Johnny Bench or Josh Gibson and is willing to give up the farm.

Toronto is looking to move one of their young talened Catchers... If the Reds could get Price away from the Rays for Mesoraco + 3 prospects, I'd trade relief pitching for J.P. Arencibia. That guy is going to be a MASHER!
