Re: Mesoraco makes team, Olivo down or gone

The first quote was also taken out of context. Somewhere around the middle of this thread posters were jumping on Leake's and Homer's first couple bad outings as proof of Meso's lack of game calling. The initial argument on Meso's side was, he catches the weaker pitchers, of course his catcher era would look worse than hannigans. Then after Mesoraco caught a weeks worth of games with the better pitchers, it was obvious that the first few bad starts wasn't really his fault. He caught better pitchers. Not really saying the numbers mean anything, just that its not his fault that Homer couldn't throw a fastball for a strike or Leake was leaving pitches up in the zone.
