Game 105: What the hell happened?
Game 105 Spillover Thread

PeteAbe has the news. Montero broke the middle finger on his right (throwing) hand after catching a pitch in last night’s game. He’ll be out 4-6 weeks according to the team, meaning he’s out for the rest of the minor league but could return in time for a stint in winter ball. Montero finished the season at .337-.389-.562 with 17 homers.

    I’m planning on going to a Trenton game next Saturday and I have the means by which to get Montero a get-well soon card.

    I am seriously considering it as a possibility.

    • I hate V

      Don’t bother. He’ll just use it to wipe his ass.

      • pat

        You’re pathetic.

        So?

        lol that your name is “i hate V” what did he do to you

      • V

        My, my, I have a fan.

        Btw, everyone, this is the same asshole that was making light of Thurman Munson’s death a couple of threads back.

    What an absolute bummer. Still, at least he was awesome this year when healthy, and this shouldn’t set back his long-term development.

  • Salty Buggah

    Here’s hoping he gets fully healthy and comes back mashing next year and in winter ball.

  • bravofan

    Sorry to hear about this. As a Braves fan, it was always interesting to compare Jason Heyward and Jesus Montero’s stats. Montero was obviously the better power hitter. Good luck to the Yankees organization in the future.

    RIP Montero

    • Salty Buggah

      WTH? he broke a finger

    • Accent Shallow

      I think I might rather have Heyward.

      Montero isn’t exactly a consolation prize, though.

    • pat

      Haha, luckily it’s a rather minor injury but thanks for the condolences.

    • Mike bk

      RIP? he aint dead, he broke a digit. get well soon much more appropriate.

  • Dela G

    Does anyone think he’ll still make a good run at AAA when he comes back. Lets hope his mechanics stay the same

  • Drew

    Talk about a nice line. 337/389/562

      Wouldn’t that be 1 B.C.?

  • Tony

    Broken finger is good news at this point.

    • DreDog

      I agree. He might make winter ball exciting too.

      • Adam

        atleast its not the wrist

  • crawdaddie

    I always thought the Yankees will play him in the AFL and now with this injury I think it guarantees it if he’s healthy by then.

  • J Squared

    Montero is our favorite, his bat was just getting really hot for the 2nd time in Double-A, Get Well you hitting machine.

  • Mike in Florida

    I am not a machine…Get well Jesus. NY can’t wait for you to arrive the middle of next year.

  • Chaz

    i knew we should have traded him!!!!! !!

  • Reggie C.

    There goes any chance for Montero to win BA’s Minor League POY …

    Guess its gonna be Heyward by default.
