Once again the Cards do what is needed to win ! Hoe sweet it would be if the Reds could/would find that trait within themselves ! We can only dream. A good friend of mine once told me that if you root for the Reds and KY football just accept the fact that you will be continually disappointed. His prophecy comes true over and over.

According to article by Rosencrans from Enquirer Mesaraco expects hip problem to be a lingering issue that does not lend itself to rehab. Mes says he won’t be able to catch for a few days and then see if he can handle it. Price wants him available to possibly pinch hit. I am a huge Mes fan, but think he needs to be on the DL for now and not be taking a spot on the 25 man roster. If Reds medical staff can’t put a name and prognosis and treatment for whatever the problem is, then get him to Cleveland Clinic or some major research facility and see if they can diagnose it. Sounds to me that the Reds and Mes are spinning their wheels hoping this will suddenly correct itself.

The Reds weak activity this winter proves Jocketty is out of touch—-please start cleaning house.

I am all for a steady lineup but shouldn’t byrd get a day off or 2 since he can’t hit the broad side of a barn? isn’t the reds bench supposed to be improved this year? I thought boesh was a upgrade that could play whenever need? when your starting left fielder is batting .147 ut of t ba now would be a good time to see if this guy can do the job he was signed for. if not him then put him in for Bruce.

agreed. but Jocketty likes him

Mesaraco has been diagnosed, he has a Hip Impingement you can read about it on Webmd.com. Not good. I can see why he’s worried.

Thanks. Read about it and agree he should be worried. Does not sound like something especially a catcher would want to have. Surgery may be a way to treat it. Sounds like the Reds are messing with something that won’t get better on its own. Still think he should be on the DL and get other opinions on treatment. I fear this is going to be a 2015 version of Bruce and Votto in 2014.

I told you guys when Mesoraco got hurt , it would take 11 days playing with a man short before the Reds would put him on the DL . It’s the way they operate . This is a sad organization . Maybe Latos was TOTALLY off base . Just saying .

Jay Bruce can’t hit !!! Byrd can’t hit ! This , I’m afraid , is the real Reds .

Did Mesoraco pinch hit ? I didn’t think so . Hey , but he’s available . Lol what a joke !
