Re: Reds sign C Miguel Olivo
I think this is more a statement about the maturity of Mesoraco than anything about Olivo.
It sure seems that drafting Grandal was the best thing the Reds ever did to light a fire under Mes... and when Grandal was traded away, Mes returned to mediocrity. Last year Mes was annointed as the catcher of the future... and then I seem to remember a few allegations that he didnt listen very well and that was the a contributing cause for his demotion.
Signing Olivo may be just a way for Jocketty to show Mes that the Reds are prepared to spend a season without him if he does not change his attitude/approach. If that is the case and it works to bring back the 2011 Mes... we will look at this as a great signing even if Olivo never does a darn thing on the field.
