Martin is 3rd best catcher, so he may make it as injury replacement. Happy for Jeff Locke as seemingly the entire baseball world, (especially you James) had him pegged to take a turn for the worse a couple moths ago.

Congrats to all who made it!

On his way to back to back 30 HR seasons, with a good shot at 40+ this year, and an All Star selection… That price keeps going up and up.

Not that you get paid for winning, but watch him put on a show at the HR Derby in front of the nation too. Everyone in the country is going to know who he is after the break.

He’s probably the most valuable player to the Cardinals roster, similar to what Martin means to the Bucs. I think the Cards hold him back and give him a few days off, opening the door for Russel to really give the All Star game a Pirates feel with 5 representatives… Or 20% of the roster

Was a little surprised to not see Marte in the last 5 vote… Although I get it, he doesn’t have the star power and name recognition that Adrian Gonzales does and has been in the league for about 5 minutes.

That’s difficult given their offensive output. Martin easily bests both on defense, however — even the heralded Molina.
But…
It’s a shame Marte did not make it. He earned a spot.
