Victor Martinez - The 2nd best catcher this year?

Postby HolyCow101 » Thu Jul 15, 2004 3:55 am

I really really think that Victor Martinez will be the 2nd best catcher this year in baseball. This is his breakthrough year and he will continue to be a stud throughout the 2nd half. The only category he will be beaten in is most likely HR's.

What do you guys think?

EDIT: OOPS! I TOTALLY FORGOT ABOUT IVAN! :-[ Somone slap me :-D

He's good... but not that good yet. Pudge has him beat by a LONG shot this season.

Except for that Pudge guy. I still think Lopez, Posada and Piazza may be as valuable (if not more) than VMart by the end of the season.

I think Pudge is miles better than V-Mart.

He had a good May and June, but I don't see this continuing..........

I'd also rather have Piazza, Posada, or Javy for the rest of the year.

Obviously for year-end numbers it's impossible... but for second half, I think Mauer is gonna one-up Vmar too.

So, should we sell high on him?

he has to wear down ( thoi hope not since i have him on my squads). i think he will be steady in the second half, but not spectacular. i picture him hitting .290 10 hr 40 rbi 40 runs which will still put him around 20 hr, 100 rbi, 90 runs, .290 for the year.

i see pudge and piazza topping those stats but nobody else coming close with exception of lopez.

you dont trade vmart unless you have somebody like posada, lopez, pudge, maur, or piazza on your squad. he'll still be one of the top half dozen catchers in the 2nd half.

agreed.

considering that if you have v-mart you grabbed him as a FA or very late round draft pick, be happy with the ROI and gear up for a nice second half!
