As I commented in the next post, I am not really sure why Montero, Chavez, or most any other of our non-regulars should be taking any of Posada's at-bats at this point. Jorge is down to a platoon player against right-handed pitching, and in such a role his stats this year are better than Chavez or Nunez (against right-handed pitching), and better than Montero has been able to put up against right-handed pitching at any point in the minor leagues. I present the stats in my comment to the post "Can anyone here hit right-handed pitching?" for those that would like to see more.
Amen, Bexy. After watching Posada flail away the last two games, I was ready for Cervelli to PH/DH. Or maybe Martin. CC? Even he has better numbers.
Haven't been a fan of bringing up Montero early – as Brien can attest – but yes, it IS TIME. ;)
Montero probably won't hit great right off the bat( No pun intended). If you look at all the top(hitting) prospects that have come up this year all of them have struggled at first and then turned it around on down the road. BUT you never know, he may come out and absolutely rake
Yeah but there is one HUGE difference between them and Montero……. They're not playing for The Yankees
