No Fernando Martinez Thread?

I guess times have changed since he was last DFA'd. It seemed to me that ever since the Mets told the Twins "No" regarding his availability in a Santana trade, he got ten times more desirable. That of course is the same response I get from my two-year-old when I refuse him something.

I suppose getting DFA'd twice by the time you're 24 has something to do with the Mets liking to start the clock early on their prospects. I'm a loudmouth when it comes to the Twins laborious development, but this surely is a cautionary tale.
Of course it took Carlos Gomez six years but he has turned into a really good player. Did anyone notice he is currently leading the NL in average? Stunned.
