9

The Mets have quietly turned around an organization in need of change. Winning doesn't come easily, and new management has created the makings of a beast in the east for years to come.

My litmus test is how I'm going to react when I hear another team call the player's name: a) a grimace with a head bob, b) an audible "Gah!" with a twist of the neck, or c) nauseous. If (c), then take the player if he's available.

Anyone have enough familiarity with Martin to have an idea of what kind of direction this is going?

Henry Blanco is an excellent mentor

An 82.6 Mentor Rating?!?! That's almost Adam Melhuse level right there. Melhuse re-signed with the Rangers on a minor league deal the other day. Instead of his usual position of 3rd best catcher on the team's 40 man he likely gets to be the 4th (behind Saltalamacchia, Teagarden, and Ramirez)
