The fact that Mesoraco is raking early this season takes some pressure off Holmberg, but considering we traded a valuable asset like Hanigan for him, Holmberg's production will still be under the microscope. I cringed when I saw he gave up 6 ER in 0.1 IP today.
I was fully on board with trading Hanigan for a prospect. But could we have done better? Forget about today's start, what do we know about Holmberg? Do you think this was a good trade? I'm sure this has been debated before, but I'm curious to hear some fresh thoughts now that the season has started. No question Hanigan needed to be moved in order to make room for Mesoraco as the everyday catcher. But my question is could Walt have gotten more on his return?
