For a catcher to not be able to recognize pitches when he's hitting is almost impossible to do. But he seems clueless at times.
Confirmation bias says hello.
Last season Drew Stubbs swung outside the zone 3rd least amount on the team and was grouped well with Ryan Hanigan and Joey Votto before a gap to get to the next guy.
Mesoraco wasn't good, but he wasn't bad either. He was right there with Cozart (Mesoraco was 5th, Cozart 6th).

. Phillips was atrocious. Todd Frazier wasn't good at all either.
