jesus ball

When Jesus Montero hits a home run, it invariably goes out to center field, and doesn't just barely clear the fence, either, but always falls deep in the seats.

He hit one just a couple innings ago, just like that. One of these days he'll hit a ball that leaves the park.

The perennial story of the Mariners is "good field, no hit," but I expect them to lose that designation as this season progresses. Yesterday in Colorado they went bananas and scored 10 runs.

Montero is going to fill a key role in the team's renaissance. I had this guy pegged as a ringer the first time I saw him play.
