It was exactly one year ago, at 7:21 p.m. last January 13, that Seattle Times national baseball writer Larry Stone sent this tweet:
Are you as stunned today as you were a year ago? Stunned by the decision, the fallout and what it means for the Yankees moving forward? Stunned that Montero had as much trouble as he did against right-handers? Stunned that he’s still better than any current DH on the Yankees roster? Stunned that Pineda hasn’t thrown a meaningful pitch since the trade? Stunned that the Yankees still badly need Pineda to become a factor in the immediate future?
