Mind you, none of this will puncture Reds fan denial on the subject of Mesoraco.
Queue up the talking points:
"Catchers take longer to develop."
"Mesoraco's played exactly the way the Reds expected he would."
"It was only his first full season in pro ball."
"If he pans out, then it was a great pick."
"There's some incidental stat that makes him look not so bad if you stare at it while standing on your head."
"Really, he's got tools. I swear it."
