The interesting thing is that Martin's decline might actually be the Dodger's fault. In the comments section of http://www.fangraphs.com/blogs/index.php/the-alnl-gap-a-gm-disparity it's claimed that Martin has caught the second highest number of games over a three year period and as a result has faded in the second half of each of the last three years. The highest was Johnny Bench and during that time he suffered an offensive breakdown. Kinda like what a lot of teams seem to do with young pitchers - burn them out while under team control. I hate to see this kind of short-sighted stuff. This doesn't seem very Torre-like. Maybe with some downtime for Martin your $7 will be golden.
