I don't think you can expect Mesoraco to hit if he never plays

Mesoraco is getting hosed. I feel bad for the guy. He'd be better off playing every day in Louisville if this is the way it's gonna be.
Talent is God Given: be humble.
Fame is man given: be thankful.
Conceit is self given: be careful.
When something really odd happens like this, there is usually a decent reason for it.
Hannigan turns 33 during the season so there's no way he's catching 80% of the time all season. He won't hold up.
Here we are on April 5th, 2013 and the last time Devin Mesoraco faced live pitching was 6 days ago. In spring training. Why didn't he start yesterday? Why not today? Will he sit another 5 days after tomorrow to wait for Leake to pitch again?
There is no way that Dusty, even Dusty, would play a catcher like this just because. We all know he is kind of set in his ways and I think we can pretty much predict many of his moves before they are made. No one would predict this.
