No word on the price yet, but hopefully the Indians were able to extract some valuable players/prospects from Boston. The tweet is from Bob Nightengale, a USA Today writer. Of the big 3 of Halladay, Adrian Gonzalez, and Martinez, V-Mart would likely have had the lowest cost, and is not the same caliber player as the other two. This is a nice addition to the struggling Boston lineup (depending on the price, of course), but as a Yankee fan, it’s hardly a reason to panic. I imagine Martinez will spend a lot of time at 1st base, with Youkillis moving to 3rd. He will probably catch occasionally as well, to spell the gritty Jason Varitek.
Now let’s see if the Yankees make any moves in the next 2 hours, perhaps to solidify the 5th spot in the rotation (Justin Duchscherer?). I’m not expecting anything major at this point, and since Boston seems to be out of the Hallady picture with this trade, I don’t see the Yankees overpaying Toronto in a panic to keep him away from Boston.
