    If Heisey's 2012 can be looked at as a sort of sophomore slump, we could be really happy with him hitting 2nd. He is POUNDING the ball. I'd like to see who's stronger, him or Mez.

    Who is this "Mez" you speak of?

    Mes is our millenia-old backup catcher ("Mes" for the Mesozoic Era in which he entered the majors as a promising prospect). He is petrified to the bench.

    Don't quite understand why Mes isn't starting tonight. Even under Dusty's rotation, I thought it was his turn.

    Hope no injury. If anyone hears, please post.

    I was wildly impressed w/ Hanigan this series (other than the phantom tag). He is at an elite level as a receiver in this league, hopefully Mes is paying attention.

    My theory on why Hanigan is in:
    Angels and Nats are playoff-caliber teams. Dusty is making his line-up more experienced filled and more like a Reds-playoff lineup. Plus out of 3 games, the Reds starters have pitched 3 quality games. Why switch it up against the pre-season NL favorite?

    I do find it strange he didn't pinch-hit during the Angels series.

    I would imagine Mesoraco gets his first start in the early afternoon game tomorrow.

    I feel bad for Mesoraco. If this is how he's going to be used, he'd be better off playing every day in Louisville.

    Well, it's pretty obvious Mesoraco is really going to have to earn his playing time this season through his performance.

    Hard to earn it when you get the kind of intermittent playing time that Mesoraco gets.
