    Re: 2012 Jesus Montero Performance Thread

    I don't care what kind of C Montero turns out to be, I wanted to see him hit in our lineup everyday.

    This was about my viewing pleasure, dammit.

    And the whole DH issue only matters because of A-Rod's absurd contract. Montero as DH and back-up C for the rest of his career was a no-brainer otherwise.

    Also, Noesi went eight shut out innings. I know it was the A's in Safeco but a good outing nonetheless.

    That is the only thing I feel a bit bummed about. Fortunately I can still see him hit. Just not against the Yankees from now on, please!

    He has an awesome goattee and after he hit his HR the Mariners' announcer called it a "Montero Mash."

    Somewhere Sterling is upset he didn't think of that first.

    If you have seen the pic, the scoreboard called in a "Montero Moon Shot"

    This season Jesus Montero got his first start at catcher against the two-time defending American League champion Texas Rangers, hitting a clutch ninth-inning sacrifice fly in Seattle's 4-3 come-from-behind win on the road:

    But the trade didn't happen in a vacuum. The Yankees have five more years of A-Rod's contract to deal with and need that DH spot. There truly was nowhere for Montero to play with any regularity. IMO, we need to wait and see what Pineda brings to the table when he finally gets into major league games for the Yankees. I'm still excited to see this kid pitch. Even with the reduced velocity issues in ST, this young man seems to know how to get hitters out. He's more than just a thrower.

    And I need to get myself up to Charleston so I can see Campos in person before they promote him from the Sally league. It seems that the Yanks got themselves a heck of a talent in him too.

    40 pitchers, ever, have an ERA+ of 130 or higher for their career. 15 have 140 or higher. 3 guys have 150 or higher - one is right at 150, the second place guy is at 154, and Mariano Rivera is at 205.

    Jesus Montero homered and threw out an attempted basestealer Friday evening (but Hector Noesi was shelled in his third start).

    And Ibanez is hitting .282/.310/.462 LOL

    Yes I know it's small sample size.

    Considering poor Jesus is hitting in Safeco and Ibanez is hitting in NYS in a favorable split platoon, I think their numbers will be similar.

    An update. Compos is 3-0 in 16 innings with a 0.56 ERA giving up only 5 hits and 4 walks with 18 strikeouts.

    Right on! Also, I have noticed a pattern that the Jesus fanclub accentuates the positive without acknowledging the negative. As Yankee fans, we need to take notice of both over the next several seasons when evaluating this trade.

    I hated the trade from day 1.
    I hate it even more now.
    Cashman didn't do his homework on Pineda.
