It's crap like this, that proves why the Astros are a second rate team.
Did you end up picking a team for 2013, BBC?
on my team (fortunately, there is only 1 - jose altuve)
i have no idea at all why fernando martinez is on any sort of list, long OR short, to be on a major league team, after watching him play. NO strike zone judgement. no speed, no glove.
There are still Met Fan prospect watchers who are following him, and they are a persistent bunch, basically if you squint his September numbers could constitute the first sign of improvement in 3 years
I'm someone who would like to see the WBC succeed. With that in mind, I hope Selig fines the hell ou of the worthless Lastros.
He hit better in AAA in 2012 then he did in 2010 or 2011. But, then again, it was in the PCL vs the IL in previous years.
where the owner pocketing at least half of all incoming money makes him a genius seeing as how there is no sports media and what there is of it doesn't care about anything. AND the owner has said he isn't spending any money until the farm is one of the 3-4 best - not that the farm has actually graduated TOP people to the major leagues.
I wish the Mets still had Martinez. Though that says more about the Mets' OFers than it does Martinez.
Martinez is playing in the WBC.
When the Mets brought him up what most surprised me about this uber-prospect CENTERFIELDER that they'd been touting almost endlessly was his seeming lack of athleticism.
as for fernando martinez, he is not athletic at ALL - i can't figure out how he was ever a center fielder. he can barely play left. he doesn't run well and is not a good/smart baserunner
he paid five million cash for the astros and no i am not kidding.
