Stat of the day: V-Mart's two-month funk


Looking for a boost to a team that hit .248 in July, the Red Sox went
out and got Victor Martinez from the Indians before the Friday
non-waiver trade deadline. Well…


Martinez through June 3 (53 games):

.352/.425/.567 with nine homers and 40 RBI

Martinez since June 4 (47 games – this includes his 1-for-5 debut last night):

.198/.295/.331 with six homers and 28 RBI

That, my friends, is a pretty lengthy funk.
