Via Ben Shpigel –
[Joe] Girardi said he would have to “think long and hard about” whether Jorge Posada can be expected to catch 120 games next year. The Yankees believe that Jesus Montero, their top catching prospect, will challenge for playing time next year.
“Is Montero ready for the big leagues?” [Brian] Cashman said. “I have people who believe he is. He’s going to have to prove that.”
I hope this is not the same people who told Cashman that Austin Jackson was not ready for the big leagues in 2010. In any event, it will be interesting to see ‘Sado’s reaction to this news today. Will he take it as a challenge? Or, will he take it as a slap in the face?
