There is just way too much uncertainty to warrant giving someone so young that much money. That said, it doesn't phase me in the least so keep on shelling it out.... :-D


I was just like...what the hell?? I didn't say that! Then I realized that I did, almost a year ago.... :-b

Im trying to find something on Deolis Guerra. They signed him at the same time they signed martinez. Guerra was supposedly the best player out of Venezuela at the time and should be 18 right now. Could be an asset to the rotation in a few years. Any stats would help...

I am pretty sure Guerra starts this season with the GCL Mets and the GCL season doesn't begin until June.

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

Baseball America (Jim Callis) wrote:Martinez signed for $1.4 million out of the Dominican Republic last summer. Though he was a free agent then and would be restricted to negotiating with one team in the draft, he'd do better this June.

In a draft crop that's very thin on position players and is getting the worst early reviews since the 2000 bunch, Martinez would be coveted. Realistically, he's at three years away from the major leagues, so that might keep him from going No. 1 overall, but he'd likely be one of the first five or 10 picks. He's better than any high school position player available, and you could argue him against the top college position players. Martinez has a higher ceiling than Long Beach State third baseman Evan Longoria, and scouts believe he's a safer bet to hit than Texas outfielder Drew Stubbs.

Martinez already is an advanced hitter and he also has above-average power potential. With solid speed and a strong arm, he projects as a quality all-around right fielder. For the sake of comparison, he's outperforming the other 17-year-old phenoms in the South Atlantic League, Braves shortstop Elvis Andrus (.221/.279/.284) and Yankees outfielder Jose Tabata (.329/.342/.452).

Update: Martinez jammed his thumb at the beginning of May. The injury lingered and he was finally placed on the DL in the middle of May. He's been cleared to play by the Mets doctors in NY. Not sure exactly when yet but it should be soon.
