    I don't know what the hell is up with Martin, but he's developing a reputation of choking late in the season.
    Well when you play your catcher so much during the season(last year included) he's going to wear down during the stretch run. That's just a fact with all catchers.

    I expect more out of an all-star catcher.

    So because Martin is an All Star he is supposed to magically not wear down as the season goes on?

    Because he is an all star he there is some extra reserve of heart and grit he can dip into?

    That statement doesn't make any sense.

    Ethier did a nice Matt Kemp impression by swinging at ball 4. Kent is still worthless since cracking back on Vin. Ramirez is good. Loney, well, he didn't ground into a DP. I'm glad I spared the 30 mins of my day to watch 2 innings worth of baseball.

    What the fk doesn't make sense about it? He's batting .250 in Aug. And he was crappy at the end of last year.

    Not saying he's not tiring out but didn't Torre say he wanted to rest Martin more this year?

    But just because he's an all star he's not supposed to wear down after excessive use during the season?

    News flash man, catchers wear down as the season goes on. Especially ones that carry the workload of Russel Martin.

    Almost always what Torre says and what he does are two completely different things. Like Pierre being the everyday centerfielder about 3 days before sitting on the bench almost every day for a the past few weeks.
