What is the story here?  This guy is filling in for Montero, hitting .357 over 100+ AB's and has not played in the minors this or really last year.  Where did this guy come from?  He's also 35 years old!

Montero might be back soon. He's been solid in my 2C league. He'll hit for average and some RBIs, but don't count on him for any power.

Not sure where it sits now, probably still above .400, but still.... 35 years old and out of nowhere, this is a bit interesting. With Miguel on his way back coupled with the fact that he was finally hitting well for the first time really all year for about a whole month+ prior to getting hurt, leads me to believe that he should get the job back no problems.... but I'm officially (at the least) intrigued by Nieves. But the question may be am I more intrigued if we have found our next random juicer, or if he's just THAT lucky..... I should see where his BABIP sits now, a week after that comment, with his average still over .350 (maybe higher?...he's 2/4 with 2 RBI today and a run or two to boot... playing a lot...)

If Montero has any issues, and you can stomach little power, he's a nice 2nd (or backup depending on roster size) catcher.
Please friend req. +/or PM me if you would like insight or advice, as some have in the past and a couple of you currently have been doing most recently (in helping each other w/ league questions, as opposed to using the BC forum or player threads for advice). Otherwise, any of my posts can (or will) be found in the WW weekly threads, and I will otherwise be lurking kindly. I don't think this type of site is quite meant for my style of writing and that is perfectly OK, as I will keep what I can help with contrived & to the point if I post exclusively in the WW threads, where I will list any speculative CL adds as well (since the CL thread is long, and confusing enough, and I need not muddle it up any further than it already is with overstated information).
I hope to hear from some of the contributors I've enjoyed conversing within threads on these forums who I have yet to exchange PM with (and those who I do PM back & forth with, feel free to continue to PM me as I will be online as always— I will simply be writing for a 3rd party site when it comes to posts that are "tl;dr" material, and sticking to the WW thread and Private Messages from here on out and ignoring other posts). Thanks!
