Devin Mesoraco

Devin Mesoraco, the Reds' young catcher made the 2013 roster but it was a close call. Mesoraco has struggled hitting big league pitching - however he is seeing the ball pretty good lately and catching some great games. Mez caught the starting debut of Tony Cingrani last night at GABP notching a 11-1 win over the fish-outta-water.

Other than easing the rookie hurler through his first big game, Devin popped out, sac-flied scoring Todd Frazier. During his next AB a wild pitch got past Marlin catcher John Maine while Dat Dude Brandon Phillips comes across the plate. Back in the box, Mez discipline kicks in and he draws a walk, loading the bases. He made it home during the inning only to strike out at his next at bat.

Though Mesoraco is still learning the ropes catching Homer Bailey,  Mike Leake, and for now Tony Cingrani; he has notched a weak slash- line of 235/391/412.

A gift I recently received from some serious antique collectors - they have good taste and I couldn't be happier about this old catchers mitt and half-mask.
