The team's recent winning ways may have something to do with this.

3) J.D. Martinez

Thanks to a string of big-time performances recently, J.D. Martinez deserves a spot on this list. After a delayed start to the season with Scott Boras holding out for a long-term deal and settling for the short-term contract with the Mets, he has settled and locked in, producing at a high level while making other teams game plan around him.

Martinez has lines of .286/.350/.509 with the Mets this season. Over his last 14 games, his lines are .315/.422/.661 with 16 RBI's. He is constantly doing everything a professional hitter is looking to do, such as finding good pitches to hit, seeking quality contact, and spreading the ball to all fields without the leverage of situation affect approach. For the baseball fan that has watched him excel over the last decade with several different teams, Martinez is no different than he was in the past.

We offered a trade proposal last week that would send Martinez to the Cleveland Guardians for two highly regarded High-A prospects. That asking price has gone up since then and would be a great addition for a playoff or World Series contender.
