Montero leaves game after taking ball to bare hand; x-rays negative


Update (12:27am): The team announced that x-rays were negative, so exhale.

Original Post  (10:14pm): Jesus Montero was removed from tonight’s game after getting hit by a ball in his bare hand. The Boone Logan pitch hit Casey Kotchman, then ricocheted into Montero’s right hand. Austin Romine took over behind the plate. I’ll update this post with more as it comes.

    Did it look serious? I can’t watch the game.

    Excuse my language but fuck Boone Logan.

    Dear God,

    please fix Jesus.

    please just be precautionary! FUCKKKKKKKKKKK

    Broken hand – no playoffs. Crap

  6. Frigidevil says:

    Psh, Jesus can’t get hurt. He just has to keep up the charade that he’s human. After all it would be unfair to have 2 gods on one team.

  7. Andrew 518 says:

    Long term we’ve got to find this kid another position, too good of a hitter to have these kind of things happen.

  8. Joe says:

    Girardi should have benched all of the starters, including Montero, tonight. Why risk injuries and help Boston?

    • Ted Nelson says:

      Might have been getting Jesus some work behind the plate to back-up in playoffs or as a bit of a last look to see if the want to carry Romine as well

    • BK2ATL says:

      Girardi gave them reps for the first half of the game and they put up a 7-0 spot. He pulled them with a comfortable lead and everyone warmed up for Friday.

      Jesus needed the catching reps, as he might be needed behind the plate if/when we advance to the World Series.

      It was a fluke injury for the 21 yo. X-rays came back negative. Hopefully just something that RICE could cure in a couple of days.

    • CBean says:

      this is hilarious given that everyone complains every time Jesus is out of the lineup.

    1. Thank God
    2. Did the Website crash for everybody else or was that just me.

    ‘Our father’ we need a miracle of healing on Jesus hand.
