    Damn, he's got the nicest looking righty swing since Arod.

    Jesus Montero fouled out with the bases loaded to end the game Tuesday evening in Seattle's 6-4 loss to the Detroit Tigers. Montero finished 0-for-4 with one walk (and no passed balls) in his 11th start at catcher.

    Dear Mariners,

    Please don't give up on the idea of eventually turning him into a full-time catcher. Take it slow, try to help him improve incrementally year-to-year, and turn him into a passable backstop so that we can sign him as a 28-year-old in 2018.

    kthnx

    Hopefully, we'll have our own power hitting catcher by then.

    With Sanchez and Murphy both being ready for maybe 2014 . I don't think it's too big an assumption to think that one of these guys will be a good power hitting catcher for us.

    Murphy isn't exactly inspiring confidence at the moment.

    Last night I couldn't sleep so I stumbled on the 9th inning of the Detroit/Seattle game. Valverde was struggling and Fielder dropped the ball on what should have been a game ending double play...then Ichiro was walked to face Montero. He fouled out to RF - I was rooting for him to beat Valverde...

    That BB last night was his 3rd of the season. Hopefully he's settling in a bit now, as he's got an ugly 3BB/22K ratio on the year in his first 114 PAs.

    You're probably right.

    Re: 2012 Jesus Montero Performance Thread

    really funny to see people saying his stat line is all crap right now. that he is hitting for power against ml pitching is just so impressive. of course he's still learning to avoid terribad at-bats, but the offensive ceiling is clearly on display here.

    Did he do a look into the Yankees' dugout while crossing home?

    Easy to look good behind the plate with King Felix, but nonetheless no mistakes.

    This guy would be a 35-40 HR guy in NYS.

    low K% for a rook and you've got to realize the M's O sucks. No reason for him to take a BB when what follows his is a black hole even though Seager is a nice surprise.

    Some catchers find Felix Hernandez difficult to catch because of the movement on his pitches.

    U.S.S. Mariner columnist Dave Cameron compared Seattle catchers Miguel Olivo, Jesus Montero and John Jaso:

    Yet...

    But seriously, Felix was pretty upset with him towards the end of that outing. I wonder if he was unhappy with what Jesus was calling.
    Mariano Rivera was so great he was able to close a Denny's.
