That was a good read. It's hard to not be more excited about Mes now than we all were at the closing of last season. His bat has definitely come alive, so that's a good start. He has a good arm, so he should be able to throw people out. It's all the other (important) things he needs to work on. He's 19. I like his future.
Three catchers were selected within the first 10 picks of the recent draft, even though two of the three — Buster Posey, taken fifth by the Giants, and Jason Castro, taken 10th by the Astros — are generally viewed as future big-league starters but not stars.
Uhh...I don't know about Posey. I watched him play. While I didn't get a good read on him defensively, the dude can hit. I think his bat has definite star potential.
