[QUOTE]very dissapointed greetings boomer Look at Montero, who has been handed the Yanks catcher slot for years and he can't even beat out Posada this year. Lavarnway has been the 2 time Redsox offensive minor league player of the year for the Sox and this year he will be again. He led the NCAA in hitting also. He's 24 years old now. What does he have to do to show that he can hit? Hello? Posted by Boomerangsdotcom I figured only SPC would actually knock a 21 yr old for not making the first place yankees why should he be here if he's not going to play everyday our offense isn't all that bad without him as far as lav goes he's a big kid that looks like maybe he can hit but that's all we know so far

I've never knocked Montero for not making the Yankees. All I'm saying is that based on stats
, Lavarnway has been the better catcher.
You kind of have a double standard here...
You use Montero's age as the excuse for why he's not on the Big League roster and for why he's not putting up big stats but,
Lavarnway is a big kid that looks like maybe
he can hit
Last time I checked, Montero has rather unimpressive stats and has shown no evidence that he's going to break out. You can say he's 21 all you want, but that doesn't change the fact that his stats aren't living up to the hype.
Last time I checked, Lavarnway has been getting better and better, hit 30 HR and drove in 85 runs in the minors, and has earned a spot on the big league roster.why should he be here if he's not going to play everyday our offense isn't all that bad without
That may be part of it, but I think he's not there everyday simply because he hasn't proven that he deserves to be there everyday.
