Let's assume that Cueto/Latos/Arroyo/Bailey/Chapman is the rotation. Last year, Mesoraco wasn't allowed to catch Cueto or Arroyo. Mesoraco got pulled from Latos after three or four poor starts (like Latos has EVERY APRIL FOR HIS ENTIRE CAREER) and never caught him again. Mesoraco got pulled from Chapman when he finally started giving up earned runs in June and never caught him again.
So now Mesoraco is going to be what? Regulated to catching Homer Bailey? That is going to give the other guys his trust? How?
