Some Designated Food For Thought

Yankee DHs This Season: .272/.328/.482, 10 XBH, 23 RBI, 11 BB, 19 K

Jesus Montero This Season: .275/.289/.431, 9 XBH, 16 RBI, 3 BB, 22 K

Just in case anybody wanted to reignite the "Cash blew the Montero trade" fire after the latest news of Jose Campos hitting the MiL DL with elbow inflammation.  Not having Montero's bat in the lineup has not hurt the Yankees at all this season.

Jesus Montero would have injected the aging Yankee lineup with some youth and excitement that can't be measured with stats. This trade may still work out but now there's a decent chance that Cashman traded Montero for nothing in the end.

It's still way too early to say if the trade worked out or not. I'm sure in the long run Jesus is going to mash, but you can always find offense and the production they've gotten this year from the lineup proves that.

Injuries aside, they still have 2 high-ceiling pitchers under the age of 23. Patience, patience, patience.
