What's best for the Reds, but what's best for Devin?
I submit that Mesoraco playing twice a week is a bad idea. I'd rather see him in AAA getting his mojo back, if it works. Then, when he comes back, after hopefully dominating AAA, he's your main catcher.
I want to get Devin back on track. I don't see it happening as a twice a week catcher.
Your suggestion seems to be let him play three times a week. Maybe. Question whether that will jump start him. And question whether Hanigan should be sitting that much.
I don't know the young man. Some of it depends on his personality. How will he take another few months at AAA? How will he take playing twice a week with the Reds? Three times a week?
That's really what we're talking about here.
Don't want to see him as a pure backup for the Reds this year. Looking toward winning, I'd like Hanigan to play most games.
Seems to me a great period at AAA would do him the most good, but the Reds know him best and presumably will make the best call on this.
