Good article. Corcino is going to be interesting to follow this year.
A little bit about Mez too. Interesting that Dusty said they lacked offense from their catchers.. IMO, the Reds did pretty well offensively from the catching group.. I guess Baker has higher expecations (Nothing wrong with that).
When asked if he would have kept Mesoraco in Triple-A when camp broke last season if he could have a do-over, Baker defended the decision to keep him in the Majors.
"We were told that Devin was ready by our people that saw him," Baker said. "It's easy to say after the fact you'd do it [differently]. It's the easiest thing in the world to say. We won 97 games even though Devin struggled, which is pretty good. We lacked overall offensive output from our catchers, which we had gotten accustomed to with Ramon [Hernandez] and Hanigan
Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2012 AND 2013!
