MLB Daily Dish: A Roundup Of Reviews

Over at MLB Daily Dish, Justin Bopp has collected links to tweets and Pineda/Montero-related articles for your edification. There's probably a second wave coming today and tomorrow. But for now, this will do just fine.

One point from Jon Morosi that I hadn't thought about:

Yankees know a lot of their older regulars will need DH days to stay fresh. Thus, less painful to trade Montero.

With Alex Rodriguez going to Germany to get Bavarian cream syphoned into his knees, Derek Jeter approaching forty, and Mark Teixeira having two down years in a row, there's something to be said about the Yankees keeping the DH spot relatively open for a carousel of thirty-somethings.

But on the days that the Yankees aren't resting someone at the DH spot, they'll be relying an awful lot on Andruw Jones and whoever is the left-handed complement. And on the days the Yankees are resting a regular at the DH spot, that means they'll have a lesser hitter in the field. A whole lot of Eduardo Nunez is what I'm getting at. I can see the logic, but I'm not sure it's automatically a great thing.

Also of note: Andruw Jones being a DH makes me feel older than if I heard through the grapevine that my high-school girlfriend just became a grandmother.
