  1. So I have Carlos Ruiz at Catcher, and am required to start him as he has been incredible so far…think it’s worth it to drop Jesus for someone like Belt? On the wire are guys like Ellis, Martin, Doumit and Rosario in case of a Ruiz injury…it just seems like a wasted bench spot at this point

  2. No one cares about your fantasy team or what you do with it.

  3. Considering this is ROTOgraphs, your post is entirely wrong and kind of embarrassing.

  4. I’d trade Ruiz. Montero will finish with ~100 more plate appearances than Ruiz, and probably more home runs. If Montero hits .260 over the rest of the season, and Ruiz hits .300, and they both hit their playing time projections, Montero will gather 15+ more hits than Ruiz. That probably means more Rs and RBIs than Ruiz.

  5. Why are you sweating a bench spot? Keep, dump, trade. Those are your options in no specific order. I’d lean towards the latter two.

  9. Montero can’t hit righties….he can’t hit at home….he hit terrific at Yankee stadium last year, bombed on the road….just not what we were hoping for.

  10. Way to sum up a 22-year-old catcher with just over 300 career at-bats in three lines. You’ve got him figured out.

  11. He also always hits better in the second half, and has hit worse than this in the first half the past two years.

    But why let facts get in the way of the narrative?

  12. Just as no one cares about your opinion, moron.

  14. Who is the better upside play for the rest of the season Montero or Carlos Santana? I currently have Montero but Santana is available.

  15. “Montero’s current .146 isolated slugging percentage is worse than the numbers he put up at every stop in the minor leagues except for his first 123 plate appearances in rookie ball. He routinely put up ISOs over .200. His current 21.9% strikeout rate is worse than he put up in every stop in the minor leagues. In that context, he’s certainly not the player he was projected to be.”

    I’m pretty sure that every minor leaguer projects to have a lower iso and higher k rate in the majors. I hear the pitchers there are a little better.
