Victor Martinez To The Red Sox

An article by posted on July 31, 2009

We’re less than two hours aways from the end of the trade deadline and not a peep from Omar and the Mets, worse yet not even a tweet.

Bob Nightengale of USA Today has tweeted:

The Red Sox are about to acquire Victor Martinez from Indians

This has been confirmed by MLB Network.

I’m surprised that Victor Martinez isn’t a Met. He seems to fit the mold of everything the Mets could use right now.

  • He can catch and play first base.
  • He’s a switch hitter who makes great contact and has a high OBP.
  • Has a great line drive swing with good power that would play well at CitiField.
  • He’s a team leader with a bulldog mentality.
  • He comes with a 2010 option for a mere $7 million dollars.

Too bad…
