    Not my favorite pick, but it's definitely not a disappointing pick. I'm satisfied.

    Catcher, Miami
    Born July 18, 1989> Draft Day Age=20.9
    Ht/Wt... 6-2/210, Bats Switch / Throws Right

    Composite Review...

    Grandal's value is automatically high because of three magic words: Switch-hitting catcher. The youngster from Miami has good raw power, another facet of his game that will aide his rising stock. He has more of it from the left side, but there are questions about his mechanics. From the right side, there are concerns about his bat speed and follow-through.

    Defensively, he is solid if not spectacular. He is hardly regarded as a fast runner, but his quick feet will allow him to make necessary movements behind the plate. His skills will continue to improve, a necessity given the fact that he is expected to move through the minor leagues quickly. But make no mistake – it is his hitting that has scouts excited, and his hitting that will tell how much success he has in the pros.

    Hopefully the Reds can get him to sign his bonus demands scare me a bit.
    If you have a losing record at Reds games, please stop going.

    Not bad at all. I liked Brentz but I'm fine with Grandal.
    I miss Adam Dunn.

    Where does that leave Mes? Seems like they're going to be in similar places developmentally moving in to 2011.
    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    Maybe it's a Sowers pick and they are saving for a megadraft next year.

    Hopefully not.

    The Rangers had like 15 catching prospects just a few years ago, now they are trying to acquire one.

    Both players have to "pass the mustard" Defensively where Mesoraco is getting the first shot right now at AA. Grandal will start at High-A.

    Tough sign, but if they don't sign him and take the pick next year, I'm OK with that.

    Wonder if this ends the Soto experiment?

    I think Grandal is further along than Mez is.
