Wanna take up the bet? It can be your way to prove me wrong!
What am I supposed to listen to? That Victor Martinez is Travis Lee? That Victor Martinez who was one of the best prospects in the minors proved himself in his first full season is a fluke?
Look at his inside numbers for 04. His K/BB, SLG, OBP, 2B total and look up his situational stats. He not only hit great but he was also very clutch if you actually saw him play.
Am I blindly looking at minor league numbers only? VMart did put up great numbers in the majors in 04 no? Does he still look like a fluke to you?
He started off slow in 04 as well. We are not even finished with week 2 and people are already writing him off. You don't have to like him but you have to admit that he is a top 3 offensive catcher in the majors.
