    That's a .680 OPS which is worse than his actual road OPS. If he was still with us he would have been sent to AAA with that line.

    To think that I once would have been happy if you told me Montero had thrown out Ichiro trying to steal!

    Didn't realize he was hitting .323/.357/.480 away from Safeco (.199/.248/.321 at home). Almost exactly the same # of plate appearances (213 and 210, respectively).

    Bah.

    after his 0-for-8 performance in last night's 18-inning marathon, he is now rocking a .690 OPS

    Making it a lot easier to stomach the Pineda trade.

    Re: 2012 Jesus Montero Performance Thread

    Him having an OPS+ under 100 might be the most surprising thing about this MLB season to me.

    I'm still not worried about him in the long run if there's no significant attitude issue causing this. If it's just baseball and adjusting to pitchers/parks then I still think he'll be fine.

    I still feel that this was a terrible trade and still think that Montero is going to have a long and productive career. He is young and will only gain from experience. Who knows maybe in the future he will still end up with NY when he is a free agent.

    You mean when he is 40 years old and barely hitting his weight.

    It's a tough park, but a .294 wOBA is really bad.

    Monetro may one day be a very good MLB hitter. That day is not now.

    It was a worst case scenario for Montero, going to that park and moving away from Yankee Stadium which plays well to his opposite field power.

    If he plays poorly enough, maybe the Yanks can get him back....

    I just looked at the in-game box for the M's/O's game going on right now, and even with his 0-2 so far tonight against Saunders, Jesus Montero (.258) has the highest batting average in the current Seattle lineup.

    He actually hit worse than his 0-8 line would indicate.

    Some highlights were the 3 pitch K to Day 2 of which were swinging strikes out of the zone, the other strike was down the middle and the great 1st pitch popup with man on 2nd no outs.

    Re: 2012 Jesus Montero Performance Thread

    Columnist Dave Cameron at U.S.S. Mariner writes that the Seattle Mariners should consider trading Jesus Montero:

    http://www.ussmariner.com/2012/09/20...jesus-montero/

    When Seattle traded for Montero in January, the Mariners did not have elite catching prospect Mike Zunino and did not know that recently acquired catcher John Jaso would post a WAR of 2.7 in a part-time role (although I'm sure the M's suspected Miguel Olivo would be, well, Miguel Olivo).

    We could send them Brien Taylor for Montero.
