Good luck Victor Martinez
Victor Martinez has moved on from the Red Sox. There was no post season glory with him behind the plate. Heck the Sox never won a post season game in the year and a quarter he called Fenway home.
But he got a few hits for the Sox, made an All Star team and was a likable enough guy to root for.
This Red Sox fan wishes him well as he goes off to Detroit.
Meanwhile with Martinez gone and Beltre certain to go elsewhere, Theo is piling up some draft picks. He knows that the Sox will pick at least 4 times before the second round is up.
So either the Red Sox will be sniffing around for some big time free agent knowing that their draft won't be blown... or they could be ready to deal some prospects because the cupboard could be replenished next summer.
Either way, the winter is starting to get interesting in Boston. Good luck in Detroit, Victor. You'll look good with the Old English D.
