"To meet two in one calendar year.it was pretty special for me", Almora said before Wednesday's game.
"It really sucks because the stolen bases go on me", said Montero, who has yet to throw out a player trying to steal in 31 attempts this season.
Montero's comments look even worse when you consider that this season as a backup he threw out only 1 of 32 baserunners trying to steal a base, while Willson Contreras the starter for the Cubs at catcher has thrown out 16 of 47 baserunners attempting to steal.
In his defense, it's reported that Montero called Arrieta afterward to apologize for his comments, to which Arrieta accepted. "As a veteran like he is, you'd think he'd make smart decisions about it". In fact, Montero and the Cubs' pitchers share the responsibility of throwing out base runners.
Montero made a point to mention his personal statistics and how they have taken a dip this season. I said what I said - yes, I'm responsible.
"I think we have a great clubhouse", Rizzo said. I like everything that it represents a lot. "We have another catcher that throws everyone out".
"To the city of Chicago, Dear fans, today I say goodbye to the greatest fans".
A couple hours later, Montero went on ESPN 1000's "Carmen & Jurko Show" and didn't back down from his comments.
"I was being honest, and they know I'm right", Montero said. "If you can't handle the truth, don't ask me then".
Montero also thanked Epstein during their conversation on Wednesday.
In the picture, center fielder Albert Almora Jr. seems like he is flipping off the camera.
Upon closer inspection, it's clear that Almora's index finger is extended along with his middle finger in the photo.
The Chicago Cubs already visited the White House once this year as they reign as World Series champions, but when they go there again on Wednesday to visit with President Donald Trump, several will skip the trip.
Montero, who had an error on a throw to third, said it's frustrating for a catcher to get the ball and see a runner almost to the base. He was slashing.286/.366/.439 upon his release.
Neither of the past two NL Cy Young Award winners had his best stuff, though Max Scherzer handled things much better than Jake Arrieta.

Pero en cualquier caso será el Real Madrid el que ponga el precio de salida y que se acercará y mucho a los 200 millones de euros. Además, volver al Old Traford y la posibilidad de coincidir con José Mourinho podrían ser tentador.
