Let’s stick with the catching situation. The 2010 season has so far not been much of a salary drive for Victor Martinez, has it?
Along with his well-chronicled inability to throw out base-stealers (1 for 27), Martinez is hitting a pedestrian .247 with one home run and five RBI in his 77 at-bats.
Martinez has struggled hitting left-handed (11 of 55) and is hitting .176 away from Fenway Park. A .188 average with runners in scoring position accounts for the lack of RBI.
