    Default Yankees Trade Jesus Montero to the Mariners for Michael Pineda

    I think it's a good move for the Yankees...Hopefully Pineda isn't overwhelmed pitching in NY and can fill in that #2 spot in the rotation..

    I think it's a great trade for the Yanks. Montero might turn out to be a superstar, but the Yankees don't feel he's a full time catcher. He's either a DH or 1B and he ain't replacing Tex. The Yanks need the DH spot free to give A-Rod and Jeter a rest in the field. And as far as catchers go, they have Martin, Romine and Gary Sanchez down in the minors.

    Wow - excellent move by the Yankees. Pineda looks like a beast and they have other catching prospects.

    This is bad news for the Red Sox.

    Yankees also signed Hiroki Kuroda to a one year deal setting up a rotation of CC/Pineda/Nova/Kuroda/ and either Hughes/Burnett/Garcia ....I would imagine with this signing the Yankees will finally try to dump Burnett's contract, Hughes will fill the 5th spot, and Garcia will be the long man

    Who cares? The Yanks are bigger chokers than the Sux
