Victor Martinez Staying In Cleveland?

According to Ken Rosenthal and John Paul Morosi of, the Cleveland Indians are officially "pessimistic" about the idea that Victor Martinez will be traded before the deadline.

When asked about the idea of Martinez being traded one Indians official said, "Not much here."

Their has been rampant speculation over the last few days that Victor Martinez would ultimately end up a Red Sox, but as we've learned the Sox now appear to have shifted their focus to Adrian Gonzalez.

The Red Sox have also been in discussions with the Blue Jays about Roy Halladay, but that appears to have come near an end as well.

Remember a lot can change over the next few hours, but as of now it looks like Martinez is staying, and the Sox are focusing on Gonzalez.
