Only thing about him is he's a proven 200 inning plus guy so the chances of awful starts are less he's ready to give you 6-7 innings quite often and keep you in the game with your offense. Also he has shown to be really a good a few years back and surgery may have him getting stronger by now? Not sure but that's a maybe - Montgomery showed some potential but I hope he improves on how fast (or low he's awful) he works and how many innings he can pitch. At times it was obvious he was spent inning 5 and that's scary for the bullpen.Clearly the Yankees like him since they drafted him a year or two before Pitt took him #1 overall.
So, they like him already and he has #1 overall talent. Only problem is, his results haven't been great, but Pittsburg thinks he's "ace" material. I don't want them to give up Frazier for him, either, and hopefully since talks seem to have died down we'll see if they can wait them out like they did with Stanton.
His potential is obviously worth it, but hopefully they don't give up a ton to find out he's the newest Ed Whitson / Kenny Rogers / Javier Vazquez "ace" that can't live up to his "ace" pedigree and gets run out of town.
