    All pitchers get lucky and unlucky. Where do his peripherals lie is the better question.

    Agree, I see similarities. In terms of delivery, and I've said this before but no one reacted because i am as old as dirt, he reminds me of a guy the Yankees had in the mid-70s and re-acquired in the early 1980s named Rudy May. Delivery is VERY similar. But Rudy depended on a booming curve and a Vaseline fastball, repertoires are not alike.

    At any rate, excited about his future. Solid rookie year and he looks like a learner.

    As I recall, Rudy May was more 3/4 delivery which enabled that curve to give fits to LH hitters. Monty comes over the top and really doesn't remind me of anyone else.

    If he wins today, he will become the seventh Yankee rookie at get at least 10 wins with fewer than 160 innings. The Yankees to do that were Russ Van Atta in 1933, Atley Donald in 1939, Ron Davis in 1979, Orlando Hernandez in 1998, Alfredo Aceves in 2009, and Masahiro Tanaka in 2014.

    Interesting take.

    The guy Montgomery reminds me of in terms of both delivery and physical stature is former Yankee Dennis Rasmussen. Based on memory, I believe Monty throws much harder, though.

    He lowered his ERA to 3.88 and gets another no decision to finish 9-7. He became the 28th rookie with at least 29 starts and fewer than one-fourth as many losses as starts (I didn't say "losses in fewer than one-fourth of his starts because pitchers could have gotten relief losses). The only previous Yankee rookie to do that was Russ Ford in 1910. He and Colorado's German Marquez made this the third year that two rookies did that. The previous two times were Damian Moss and Jason Jennings in 2002 and King Cole and the aforementioned Russ Ford in 1910. Montgomery's 9 wins make him the first rookie to do that with fewer than 11 wins, and he has the fewest innings of those 28 pitchers.

    Zim, that's a good one!! Didn't think of that, but that is really a good comparison. Monty does throw harder, but there are similarities.


    Good job.
