Gus will get back in soon and play well.
Mez is a UFA at the end of the year. There isn't a single team out there that's going to give up anything substantial for a guy that they can get for free in July, and he's certainly not any team's missing piece for a cup run. So what's the point of showcasing him? To bump his return up from a 5th round pick to a 4th? Mez is playing over Gus because they feel like he's the better player at this point, as moronic as that sounds.

I wouldn't be surprised to see Gus bolt as soon as he gets the chance. This organization has done their best to ruin the guy from day one.
