  1. Grandal seems to be hitting well since coming back from his injury. That’s a good sign.

  2. @RiverCity Redleg: Yes. I think it is a mistake if they make the decision to put all their future catching hopes into Mesoraco before he even plays a season at MLB.

    They need to hold onto Grandal at the least until they are certain about Mesoraco at the MLB level.

    Grandal may have the higher ceiling; and, he is only a season to season and a half behind Meso.
