Pineda is a nice young pitcher, but Montero is the best hitting prospect in the game, and as we saw last year it wasn't just hype. So unless they were getting King Felix in return I really didn't want to see Montero traded. Another thing that scares me is that Pineda is a fly-ball pitcher which doesn't always work out too well at the bandbox in the Bronx.
Hopefully this isn't a deal the Yankees end up regretting for a very long time.
... Oh, and who the hell is going to DH now?
