That’s the best news that my fantasy teams has heard since October 4th when we won the championship. My speculative pickup, Jesus Montero, is going to be given a shot to win the starting catching job in New York next spring. Montero’s stats, which I discussed here, are completely legit, so it’ll be exciting to see whether or not he can live up to the hype.
According to most baseball pundits, a rise in Montero’s defensive skills coupled with his major league ready bat have forced the Yankees hand. Cashman took one look at Jorge Posada this off season and realized that he was one foul ball away from death. Good thing they managed to hold onto this prospect.
Great news for all those keeper leagues out there, and all those incredibly savvy, sexy fantasy general managers who took a flier on him at the end of last season.
