Martis should have had more respect all along. JZ got top prospect attention, but Martis has more years of pro experience, has proven he can pitch the innings throughout the year, had a no-hitter in the WBC when he had yet to turn 19, and was as effective in ST as JZ despite still being younger. At some point this season, and maybe fairly soon, JZ and Martis are quite likely to emerge as the clear best two pitchers on this year's staff. But JZ is most likely to be shut down in September. Martis may go longer.
Whatever happens, the rest of the National League better be pissing themselves about having to face Strasburg, Zimmermann and Martis in 2010. You might call it the east coast's answer to Lincecum, Cain and Sanchez, or maybe the north's answer to Johnson, Nolasco and Volstad.
