I simply don't understand the mindset that continues from some posters that Mesoraco is entitled to playing time. Why wouldn't we, as fans, want the best player playing so that the Reds can win more? I'd understand this mindset if the Reds were Astros or Cubs bad (or even Pirates or Brewers bad), but this team is (and was last season) built to win.
I don't know where you're getting entitlement from. The best player should play, but its probably in our best interest to at least consider the possibility that Hanigan isn't the best player.
