Why would we think that though? I don't particularly remember a prospect at any other position given such a big assumption to how well they are going to produce, in favor of an established quality player.
I'm not sure why it is that it's shaken out that way for Mesoraco and Hanigan. Maybe if Hanigan was older and conceivably about to bottom out as a player, or about to get expensive/in a walk year, I'd get it.
But neither is the case. And yet a lot of us just want to give him the reigns no questions asked and say tough luck to a player who's a quality hitter and probably a top 3 defender at the most important defensive position.!
