  1. Definitely draftable in a 2 CA league as a starter. After the first 7-8 catchers things get dicey. I’d draft Martin in hopes he gets off to another hot start, maybe swipes 2-3 bags like last year with a few HR, then flip him over to an overzealous Yankee fan or owner who’s still 3-4 years behind the times (there’s almost always one)

  2. Overzealous Yankee fan, lol.

  3. Martin has been in the best shape of his life every single year

  4. Hm…the claim about BB-rate is dubious. There’s hardly a pattern of decline there. If anything, Martin’s BB-rate increased as his power declined. His BABIP declined to about .280, where it held steady until this year, too. It’s not unreasonable to think it may rebound – this year I’d guess we’ll see fewer homers, but a higher AVG and OBP — maybe not so great for 5×5 leagues, but as an AL-only SS owner, it’s looking pretty good.
