Well I don't think 119 is good enough to get in the Hall of Fame.

Seriously though.... the numbers aren't the end all....just an
addition to the games....and the books....and the talk al.

I never suggested that Martin was available or available for little in
return. I only suggested that his trade value has declined some from
2007 (OPS = .843). His OPS in 2009 was only .680 --- it is up some so
far this year (.772 --- around league average for position players but
above the .717 average for catchers).
