Success may indeed be arbitrary; however, isn't it the best way to gauge playing time when one is looking for wins?
Success in Mesoraco's case would hinge on not only his own success, but that of Hanigan and the starting pitchers both catchers handle.
Yeah I mean if he's playing well, give him more time, whatever, not a big deal. Sit Hanigan a little more often, go Hanigan 3 times through the rotation one time, alternate to Mes 3 times the next go around in the rotation.
But just naming Mes the starter outright at this point is borderline crazy IMO.
