Stat of note
Homer Bailey's last 12 games with Mesoraco catching:
12 Games, 60 Innings, 48 ER, 7.20 ERA
Homer Bailey's last 26 games with Hanigan catching:
26 Games, 178 Innings, 49 ER, 2.48 ERA
Let Butler math show, the Bailey/Mesoraco combination can only allow 1 earned run over its next 118 innings to equal the Bailey/Hanigan numbers
