Step one: start Ronnie Belliard at second. Step two: start Cristian Guzman at short. Step three: start Willie Harris at third. Step four: just when he gets comfortable and strings together a couple quick innings, pull him.
Belliard might have turned a double play or at least gotten the lead runner on Schneider's grounder in the second, but Ronnie plays so far back he had no chance. Morgan overthrew the cut-off man on Castillo's base hit in the second, which resulted in another run when Murphy hit a jam-job past Guzman to drive in Castillo. A shortstop with decent range would have at least have knocked that ball down and kept the runner from scoring.
Add in the Pagan swinging bunt hit in the first, and Martin easily could have gotten through the second inning with only one run scored. Of the eight hits off of him, only four of them were really hard-hit balls.
And finally, after getting six outs in six batters in the third and fourth, Martin got pulled by Riggleman for the pleasure of seeing Alberto Gonzalez hit an inning-ending come-backer.
Martin has marginal stuff for major-leaguer, clearly. But damn, can he ever put the ball on the black. The kid deserved better.
Since Olsen's injury sounds pretty serious (who could have guessed??), J.D. should get more chances. Next up is San Diego, and assuming Riggleman gives him an infield that can catch the ball, he should be ok.
