    It's why I'd move Ramon as soon as possible if I'm Walt. His value will never be higher and should at least garner a decent prospect.

    This is why the organization has to consider the idea of moving Mesoraco off catcher and letting Grandal play there.

    Very nice base rip. Mes just scored on a fielders choice.

    Mes with a nice play defensively on the swinging bunt down the first base line by Sterling Marte. He raced out from behind the plate, bare handed the ball and fired a strike to first base.

    Yonder Alonso draws a walk against Cards prospect Shelby Miller. It was his second walk in as many plate appearances.

    Nice to see our two Reds prospects doing well on national TV.
    "I tried to play golf, but I found out I wasn't very good." -Joey Votto on his offseason hobby search

    An MLB.com reporter asked what one thing Votto couldn’t do. “I can’t skate or play hockey,” Votto said. “Well, I can skate ... but I can’t stop.”

    Because Mesoraco's awesome, we should move him off catcher?

    To protect his ability to hit as a 3 hitter.
