RNR #43: with Reds 2007 first-rounder Devin Mesoraco

On this week’s edition of Redleg Nation Radio, Reds prospect Devin Mesoraco joined Bill for a wide-ranging conversation. Mesoraco, a catcher, was the first-round selection of the Reds in 2007. He discusses draft day, his journey through the Reds system, his strengths as a player, and much more (including a favorable mention of my alma mater). RN really appreciates Mesoraco taking a few minutes for us and we think you’ll enjoy this episode.

(Also, am I the only one who has noticed that Bill’s interviews keep getting better and better? He’s a regular Roy Firestone.)

  1. Thanks Chad….I appreciate it. I really enjoy spending a few minutes talking to all of these guys. As for how good I am…well, I give credit to the subjects and the old “blind squirrel” theory.

  2. Great interview, Bill. Let’s hope he and the other young catchers in the organization really improve this year and next. I like the idea of a roving instructor or whatever to coordinate the development of the catching crop. Seems to be a nice young man. The Johnny Bench story was pretty special.

  4. Wait. Is he 21 or 51? Some of his answers seemed a bit PC, but he sounds really mature. Sure seems like the kind of guy you want behind the plate.
