    Re: 2012 Jesus Montero Performance Thread

    I think Cash did due diligence on Pineda, before the trade went down. Trades are gambles, and in this case the Yankee gamble seemed to go bust. I say seemed because you can't evaluate it this soon. It would be ironic though if Montero didn't succeed, and Campos rather than Pineda turned out to be the real pitching stud.

    Wow...the Pineda thread has crossed over to the Montero thread.

    I thought maybe there was something new regarding Montero.....

    They did an MRI on Montero's shoulder and found that it contained Pineda's soul. Once he learns how to harness it, no one will be safe.

    It's not nearly as startling to me as seeing that Rickey Henderson has co-opted the Derek Jeter thread

    Well he just hit another homer a few minutes ago. Off the end of the bat, might have cracked it a bit but it still carried somehow.

    This is like Mariners fans whining about the trade every time Campos strikes someone out.

    I like the idea of this thread - to follow Montero and behold his awesomeness - but getting all upset over the trade every time he hits a home run is absurd.

    Not if Mariner fans are happy with Montero who was the principle part of the deal because the Mariners felt they needed a potential middle of the order bat which they felt Montero was.

    Pitching wasn't their problem hitting was.

    The reason Campos became "expendable" was because the Mariners have 3 top pitching prospects on the rise who were more advanced then Campos.

    Which is great because we got him if all else fails.

    I mean I get where you're coming from and it might be fustrating to here Montero this and Montero that but Campos isn't the equivalence to Montero in this deal, that would fall to Michael Pineda.

    Montero being a bust offensively and Pineda being a top of the rotation starter year in and year out for the Yankees would be the more accurate comparison of Mariner fans possibly whining.

    Yeah, you're missing the point. I'm just saying that rehashing the trade any time Montero does something good is silly - especially in this thread.

    If Pineda hadn't gotten hurt, and someone posted "Montero who?" in that thread any time he whiffed someone, it would get old really fast. But I don't expect that to change.

    The only thing that softened the blow of that HR was it came against a pitcher that I dislike and an organization that I hate.

    I doubt any Mariners fans are going to ever be complaining about this trade - and since when did striking out a batter in A ball become the equivalent of hitting an MLB HR?

    I know there's a contingent here that wants to shut down all discussion about this misguided and ultimately disastrous trade and move on, but it ain't happening. Sorry.
    Plays the game the wrong way.

    Never said they would. I don't pretend to be able to evaluate a trade this early.

    - and since when did striking out a batter in A ball become the equivalent of hitting an MLB HR?
    Never said it was. But for clarity, pretend for a second that Pineda hadn't gotten injured. If someone posted in this thread about the trade every time he had a QS, it would be myopic and obnoxious.

    Never asked for that to happen. But there is a thread for analyzing the trade, and this is not it. This thread should be about Montero's performance and the Pineda thread should be about Pineda's performance - or recovery now. But I guess it will always be hard for people to separate the two.

    Fine. I imagine you also get upset any time Jose Tabata hits a home run.

    Precisely. I imagine you take hyperbole to new levels.

    opposite field homer put the Mariners up 1 in the 11th but League blew the save.

    Man he loves going to center and right field. I don't think Safeco is going to contain him nearly as much as some thought (in the long run).

    this dude has some of the hardest hit singles ever. lmao


    i predict his total awkward trot around the bases time over his career will be hall of fame worthy.

    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.
