Re: Devin Mesoraco ... catcher?
I hope the Reds stay patient with this kid. I know there's going to be pressure on them since he's a first round draft pick but he's got a lot of work to do behind the plate. I'm hoping his stick keeps him around. I'm optimistic that his defense will come around but I don't think he'll ever be a run-stopper behind the plate. It's a shame, too, because he does have a good arm. Someone should have been all over this kid since early high school to work on his footwork, mechanics and transfer. It doesn't appear that happened.
