    Ugh I released him from my fantasy team two weeks ago - partly because he was on the DL and partly just because he was a Yankee.

    [QUOTE]greetings boomer I guess you are suggesting that they give up on the kid being a catcher I think it's a tad early 4 that it's rare that the yanks even have a FT DH normally they rotate the other guys giving them a 1/2 day off I'm sure you are right about them talking about it but I'm thinking it's a panic move then again it's hard to argue that  the offence couldn't use a spark but I'm hoping we don't see him until there is an catching injury

    That's right Zac, and for this reason I see no point in rushing - would be an interesting move, though.

    He's still extremely young. He can still work on his catching development and he's probably a couple years away from being ready for that anyway in all honesty. He still stinks defensively. They don't need him as a catcher right now anyway with Martin doing so well.

    As I think the 32 bit version of Zac implied, the source of yesterday's controversy may well have been a discussion of Montero's readiness to contribute as DH on this team. Posada is under pressure and he knows it. It's probably impacting him and the Yanks are not playing well, not hitting as expected and not winning right now. They have lost this Redsox series and it's hitting the fan in terms of pressure in NY.

    If the Redsox win today I think Montero will be in Tampa Monday. I don't know what they will do of course but I doubt if they cut Posada and his 13 mil salary. They will do something though unless they start winning again soon. Very soon. A DL stint for Posada? I'd bring Montero up today!

    I think it's a tad early 4 that

    it's rare that the yanks even have a FT DH normally they rotate

    the other guys giving them a 1/2 day off

    I'm sure you are right about them talking about it

    but I'm thinking it's a panic move

    The guy is one of the top hitting prospects in baseball, is an ideal DH and is hitting .330 in AAA ball. Posado is hitting like .160 as the Yanks current DH and now it does appear that some discussions are happening about something!

    For better or worse the Yanks are largely influenced by fan demands. They are going to want Montero and I would contend that Montero is still the best choice anyway. He can help this team right now and develop his hitting at the mlb level with regular DH AB. Vasquez may be the choice but I would just go with Montero right now and DL Posada. Give it 2 weeks and see what happens.

    Tomorrow. Who else is going to DH if Posada won't?

    So it is OK for me to flood the forum with multiple threads about Yankee matters. How about another twenty threads about Tampa Bay players? In the past Dottie has moved such threads out of here. What is your agenda?

    Posado does have 6 more HR than both of our pitchers put together. It would be great if he got released and the Yanks were paying his salary to play for us!

    The Yankees have Jorge Vasquez leading the IL in HRs with 14.  He's a 29-year-old veteran of the Mexican leagues, and would seem like a better choice to DH than Montero, who despite his high average, has only a .802 OPS, and was completely over-matched in spring training.  I don't think Montero would jump in and contribute right away.

    It impacts us. It was started by a Redsox fan. It is salient.

    BFD. Have it your way. I've probably posted one Yankee related post in 6 months.
