    Montero marveling over meeting Edgar Martinez-Edgar was to Alex as Alex was to me, I could ask him a lot of questions. Now I am here.

    Granted, only an intrasquad game but, some good signs…

    http://tinyurl.com/6lnh89e

    There were a couple of key defensive plays that went largely unnoticed by casual observers of yesterday’s game, but which did resonate with some members of the front office.

    How do I know this? I was standing right in front of them shooting photos.

    Anyhow, one came on the photo you see above, where catcher Jesus Montero slides to his let to block a pitch in the dirt from James Paxton. There were runners on second and third with one out at the time and the block saved a run from scoring. Moments later, Paxton struck out Casper Wells, then escaped the inning after that.

    “I thought he did a good job back there,” Mariners manager Eric Wedge said of Montero afterwards. “I thought he did a good job of moving around, blocking the ball…and he was catching those young kids with good stuff. Those are live arms and the ball’s getting on him really quick. So, I was really impressed with what we saw out of him.”

    He's going to rake. Even if he gets off slow, he's going to figure it out and just rake.

    Jesus Montero left Friday's Cactus League opener after apparently getting his bell rung by two straight foul balls off his face mask (and after hitting a towering homerun):

    I was listening to the game on my way home (I work an early shift) and was stoked for the homerun and then got really worried when he left the game. I suspect he'll be ok though.

    For what it's worth, Jesus Montero is catching starter Hector Noesi in today's game between the Mariners and the Brewers:

    Zack Greinke struck out Montero twice (Manny Parra stuck out Montero a third time) while Noesi gave up one run, three hits and a walk over three innings.

    Last spring I saw Michael Pineda duel Yovani Gallardo in that same Maryvale Stadium:

    I don't see why we would care.
    At this point, we want him to make as many outs as possible.

    Not every Yankee fan feels that way. There a lot of them that hope Montero becomes a star so they can say the Yankees/Cashman made a mistake with the hope he gets fired.

    I hope he mashes. I don't care if its against the Yankees either. I followed the dude for far too long to see him fail.
