    Be nice if he flopped, I'm always pleasantly surprised on the too rare occasions when things don't go yanks way.

    Tex isn't a complete bust. He still has some power.

    Actually Nova may be latest bust.  Check out his line from today.  Like Hughes he couldn't get through his outing.  Yankees may be in trouble this year.  There is no Colon to save them.

    You say that every year. You are the Rush Limbaugh of Yankeedom.

    OTOH, perhaps you didn't see distinguished Boston Globe columnist Bob Ryan's assessment of this years RS; largely based on their pitching.

    I predict they'll finish 3rd, and that's disrespecting Toronto.

    Who knows where this thread has gone but my response to the initial post..... A guy not getting up to full velocity in 2 innings is not news, a guy not getting up to full velocity in 2 innings during his first start of spring training is whatever 100 notches below "not news" is.

    I know it's tough for someone with your limited intelligence, but please try to follow along and stay on topic. If you want to talk about Tex perhaps you should start a thread about him.

    [QUOTE]Hi guys!  Baseball's back and that means I am too.  You can't not keep a good man down. I see that the Yankees latest pitching fenom, Michael Pineda, came to camp overweight and was only hitting 89 mph in his first start.  Sounds like the Yankees may have another Kevin Brown, Carl Pavano, AJ Burnett, etc on their hands.  Instead of costing them money this time, it cost them a potential future hall of famer in Jesus Monervo.  We'll see what happens, but this could be another one of cashman's blunders.

    Welcome back Smiley? Are the inmates from Rikers Island still running the asylum? Are they still throwing rocks at the Moon? One would think that Gov. Cuomo could find some funds in the State budget for a baseball forum for Yankee fans by now.

    That's great pike, but this is not a thread about Tex.

    Once again you show that reading comprehension is not one of your strong suits.

    Ah, the stale whiff of desperation when absolutely anything a Yankee does that is not 100% perfect--even in the first week of spring training-- breathes some life into a Sox fan. Yanks do set a high bar. And after a 2011 for the ages for the Sox, you want to be in the mix. Not hard to understand.

    Every year you're talking about this yr; you also used that excuse last yr; this is more self-contradicting buffoonery; but I guess that adds color here.

    After the storm has passed and the dust has settled I am very happy that we have AGon and they have Teixiera. That Jewish boy with the guitar sure knew his stuff.

    [QUOTE]  Agreed, but Montero isnt an elite prospect.  He's a generational prospect.  I think that is unlikely if he can't catch. This has been discussed a lot, but if Montero is a DH...? Some scouts aren't convinced: http://www.bostonherald.com/sports/baseball/red_sox/view/20220303lavarnway_catching_on_sox_prospect_in_better_position/ But Several talent evaluators insist Lavarnway may be just as good a hitter . And although he never has been regarded as highly for his defense, many consider his catching skills to be superior to Montero’s . “ I think it’s a pretty good comparison,” one National League scout said. “ Montero, I know when we talked about him, we thought you continue to pursue catching the same way Toronto once did with (Carlos) Delgado, and at a certain point, maybe he’s Miguel Cabrera at first base. I think Lavarnway has a better chance of staying behind the plate.”  Too much variability w pitchers (which is why the top 10 players selected in a given draft are generally hitters).  true  But I wouldnt trade montero for him.  A catcher who can hit third in your lineup?  Big question still!!!  Posted by Drewski5[/QUOTE]
    Posted by tom-uk[/QUOTE]

    Montero is still a very young prospect at only 21 when LaVarnway was 21 he was only in A ball. Give Montero some time.

    I didn't like the trade either if Pineda flops Cashman will never be forgiven by a large segment of Yankee fans.

    TWM

    Do you mean his catching needs more time? or is he a Napoli type now?

    I brought up the Lava/Montero comp b/c (as many have pointed out) Montero is ranked as an elite prospect unlike Lava.  Yet it is easy to find scouts comparing Lava favourably.  

    I feel it is fair to question if Montero is a "generational" prospect.   We can only go on what the scouts have said b/c neither has been seen much by any of us.  IMO the scouting is confusing: on one hand Montero is much higher in rankings while on the other hand his catching has been denegrated over the last year.

    I don't think the LaVarnway-Montero is a good comparison.

    The only point that I would make or was trying to is that I read about the comparisons being made between LaVarnway and Montero which I don't agree with because of their respective ages. LaVarnway is a few years older, they are both good prospects Montero obviously the more advanced while at age 21. Who knows what he will be in 2 years, Ryan Lavarnway's current age.

    Babe vs. Pike.......I love it. It is a rare occasion that two such epic trolls in a race for the most bans and screen names in the history of BDC take each other on.

    It is akin to Ali vs. Frazier III
