I have no problem trading Martin or Loney (I'd rather trade Loney first) for a top of the rotation arm. Martin has already reached his peak. He came up as a guy who had questionable power. His 19 bombs two years ago was a fluke. He's more of a 10-15 HR guy. He was never an efficient base stealer. He steals a lot of his bases due to surprise. When pitchers started noticing that he could run then he stopped running or he got caught more often. I may not want to trade Martin during the season though. It would affect all the pitchers on the staff and we do not have a suitable replacement (Ausmus and Ellis can't hit).
