The Toronto Blue Jays are one of three teams to show interest in American League MVP finalist Victor Martinez.Jamie Quirk Jersey. Jon Heyman of CBS Sports reports that the Jays, along with the Seattle Mariners, are interested in the 35-year-old designated hitter. Heyman says that the Detroit Tigers are also interested in retaining his services. Martinez led the American League in both OBP (.409) and OPS (.974) this season, along with hitting 32 home runs and 103 RBI and posting a .335 average. Heading into his 13th season in the MLB, Martinez is coming off of the final year of a four-year, $50 million deal with the Tigers. Heyman speculates that Martinez will be looking for a deal somewhere in the neighbourhood of four years and $80 million.

Jamies number grades given are out of five, with five being the best mark. DarcyKuemper, Minnesota (5): He was calm, poised, and looked comfortable all game. He wasnt tested very much, but was strong on rebound control and positioning. He made the most of his saves from the top of his crease; nice start for the young goalie. SemyonVarlamov, Colorado (5): Hep put a show on tonight. He could be the best goalie in the league right now as far as his crease work. Hes strong on posts with his ability to fight off second chances and cover the bottom of net stemming from his leg power and flexibility. There was too many cases to list, but he was the only reason this game was close. He had no chance on the GWG. CoreyCrawford, Chicago (5): He was outstanding all game long, He locked in from the drop of the puck, with his best saved for fighting through traffic as the Blues had a real net front presence tonight. His last big save was on Pietrangelo through a body with 40 seconds left. His rebound control was great as well, not a lot of scrambling due to his control in the net. RyanMiller, St. Louis (4): The early goal to Toews was ugly, but he rebounded with great saves on Hossa and Sharp and then a bbig save on Shaw with three minutes left.John Wathan Jersey. . Not a lot of second chances on him as the Hawks pressured in spurts. Miller gave the Blues a chance to win Marc-AndreFleury, Pittsburgh (3): He battled through a tough start and showed he has the mental capacity to lock it down. His game-saving best work was in the second when Columbus pressed hard on the PP, he made two scramble saves in tight on Johansen and Dubinsky. He also made a big save on Johansen with under 30 seconds left off the rush. SergeiBobrovsky, Columbus (3): He was great early on when he was under siege by Pittsburgh. He had a tough 2:40 stretch where he gave up three goals on three shots, but bounced back with tough saves on Crosby, Neal and Malkin in tight. FrederikAndersen, Anaheim (2): It wasnt his sharpest effort, his rebound control was an issue all game long. Benns goal was off a rebound,and Nikushkins goal went through the body. KariLehtonen, Dallas (5): He had a brilliant game; was the reason they won. He faced high quality chances and had big saves on Koivu, Silverberg, and Palmieri in the third alone to keep it at 2-0 before they scored the third goal to ice the win. His puck handling was a real strength as he was able to help exit the zone a few key times for Dallas with ease. This was a must win in their building and he delivered. ' ' '
