10 Reasons We Must NOT Trade Jesus Montero

1. Bad idea: Betraying Jesus near Christmas.

2. What a knock on the kid: He’s too big!

3. At one point last year, he had a five-game hitting streak. Wait, excuse me: A five-game home run hitting streak.

4. On Saturday, he turned 20. Yeah, twenty.

5. Last year, he tore up the Florida State League, then hit .317 at Trenton and made the Eastern League All-Star Team.

6. Cashman will hate being nicknamed "the Pontius pilot."

7. Jesus could be the new stadium's first great home-grown slugger. (Close your eyes and chant: Homegrown homerun, homegrown homerun...)

8. Jay Buhner. Fred McGriff. Doug Drabek. Jake Westbrook. Ted Lilly. Mike Lowell...

9. With Joba/Hughes, Jesus and Austin Jackson, Roy Halladay -- at 32 -- would also cost us a $100 million contract extension.

10. We can sign John Lackey, 31, for less -- and keep everybody.

11. If Jesus keeps hitting, he could be our secret weapon DH next September. (BTW: He would still be 20!)

12. We're champs. Why blow up our system for one player? Let Boston.

13. If we need a trade in July, Jesus will still be in demand.

14. Last team to betray Jesus suffered 2,000 years.
