Re: Trade Mesoraco?
I wouldn't trade Hanigan. I wouldn't trade Mes. I would try to keep Navarro.
I would start Mes at AAA for two months next year. My guess is he'd destroy AAA pitching and learn some more about catching.
Baseball fans can be so short-term oriented some times. Mes is still a very young catcher. Give him time, don't give up so fast.
The upside for Mes is still great. Yes, some guys burst on the MLB scene, but some don't.
Give Mes two months of regular AAA playing time next year, then if he's doing well, promote him to the big club. My guess is you'll see a much better ball player in the second half of 2013 and onward.
