Re: 1st Round Pick (15 overall): Devin Mesoraco, Catcher, High School
I know as much about this guy as anyone else on this board, which isn't much. I doubt if anyone here has seen him play in person more than a couple of times.
But, let me ask all of you this? How do you feel about a guy who had Tommy John surgery as a high-schooler only a year ago?
All I wanted in the 1st round was to take the best available player who didn't have major surgery.
Maybe he's good. Maybe he's not. But you always pay the piper. That surgery will effect his future. It's not humanly possible for it not to. The human body has a memory.
I don't like the pick.
