Victor locked up long-term

The Indians announced that catcher Victor Martinez has agreed to a five-year, $15.5 million contract extension with a club option for the 2010 season. This is fantastic news for Tribe fans. Martinez at $3 million a year is a huge bargain, and at 26 years old, the All-Star catcher will only improve throughout the length of this deal. Props to Mark Shapiro for getting it done.
