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.
