Dimaondbacks catcher Miguel Montero was asked about how he felt when he heard that Brewers manager Ron Roenicke was scared to pitch to him in Game 3 of the NLDS Tuesday night.â†µ
"I felt pretty good about myself when I heard that, to be honest," Montero said, drawing laughter from reporters before Game 4 Wednesday.â†µ
"It was a good quote right there."â†µ
Montero is just fine in the eyes of his manager, Kirk Gibson. The skipper said Montero has a good attitude, swings the bat well and wants to steal bases though Gibson has to stop Montero from doing that.â†µ
Montero is also a chirpy cheerleader in the dugout.â†µ
"He’s the guy who started saying the snakes, ‘Here come the snakes.’ at the beginning of the game when they play the snake music," Gibson said. "He kind of started that. He’s taken it to the next step."â†µ
Justin Upton is certainly happy to have Montero's bat backing him up in the order.
