Jesus Montero - All hype?

Posted on: April 13, 2012 8:57 am
Was there a reason the Yankees traded away the heralded Montero? Was he more a product of the Yankee hype than actual true MLB skill? So far it seems as though it was just that. Well at least in the Fantasy Baseball world anyway. Maybe too much was expected of him to begin the season. Especially with starting the season in Japan a week early, there has to be some setbacks right? Hopefully he gets on a roll here and quiets all concerns. I really hope so, since I do NOT want to have to rely on rotating on of the AJ's: Pierzynski or Ellis... wow just noticed both their names are AJ, oh man, please save me Jesus!

Jesus Montero - All hype?

Don't EVER doubt Montero again, girlfriend!  Three RBIs and a HR tonight?  He's back, baby! and you were ready to write him off after only 9 games? with a new team? in a new city? on a new coast? in a new role? on a new stage? He was meant for the stage, baby! and not the larval stage. Not to mention Noesi's eight innings of shutout ball. So, Montero and Noesi light up the stage (to steal a lyric from my boy  Ice, Vanilla) while Pineda is on the 15-day DL? I will readily  admit that  tonight's win was against the lowly A's......... who suck. But, a win is a win, right?
