However, late in a game, I wouldn't be averse to Mesoraco pinch hitting and a double switch with either a reliever or Heisey in CF.
(And I kind of resent the insinuation of "straight answer." You can't give a straight answer to any of these.)
Ok, so its in the pitchers hands.
If Mes isn't catching Cueto, for example, how is Cueto going to get comfortable with pitching to Mes?
Sounds to me that Mes' biggest asset to the team will be as a trading chip.
