Interesting that Montero suddenly can't hit. I wonder if playing in Seattle in a pitcher's park without a bunch of good hitters around him has had an impact. I'm not saying it has; I just wonder.
The Jesus will be enjoying the aroma of Tacoma until further notice. And looks like his only chance of getting back behind the plate again is another trade.
 Yeah, that's a good theory, actually, hadn't thought of that.
