    Back-to-back starts for Mes!

    Regardless of who you think should be catching who or should be playing more, it sure is refreshing to have two catchers of the quality of Hanny and Mes in the case one gets injured. It will be interesting to see how Arroyo and Mes work together.

    They seemed to work just fine in his final spring training start.

    I most definitely would. I guess we have differing definitions of quality when it comes to major league catchers.

    I agree. But then again, we've been somewhat spoiled of late. Hanigan and Hernandez was a VERY good combo as well.

    And to Maker....do some research...how many MLB catchers out there are great defensive players AND above average hitters? Nearly ALL catchers in the majors are either below average at both or excel in one and well below average in the other. Hanigan has a fairly long history of being a solid hitter. Very limited power, but far from an easy out. I don't see that skill simply disappearing. But even if it does...his defense alone makes him a quality catcher as he's quite possibly the best defender in the league (certainly top 5).
    2014 predictions:
    99-63 WS champs (Cards take 2nd WC, Mil 3rd, Pit 4th, Chi 5th)
    Bruce/Votto neck and neck MVP race (neither takes it)
    Bailey CYA winner
    Hamilton ROY & GG

    Hopefully this start will go a long way toward dispelling the notion that Hannigan is worth several runs behind the plate over Mesoraco.

    And for those who care about silly stats like this (coming into today):

    Arroyo with Mesoraco catching him: 17ip, 2.12 ERA, 1 walk, 8 strikeouts.

    i dont care about past stats i just care about what the player is doing for you right now and he is a black hole in the lineup with still good defense but Mesoraco is just as good defensively with a stronger arm

    Arroyo with 8 strong innings today with Mes behind the plate. Mes with a couple hits. The door is cracked open for Mes.

    Having better players makes "the right time" or "the big hit" happen a lot more often. PLUS PLUS

    I like his approach this season... looks good so far but of course itīs early and a small sample size => time for a little more playing time

    Mesoraco is quickly forcing his way into major playing time of late. I think Dusty will play him much more forthcoming since he his earning his PT finally.
