It’s safe to say Martinez fell a good bit short of his original ambitions. It became inevitable early on that this would happen, as the market simply didn’t develop in the players’ favor. Martinez will hope it rebounds, in all likelihood, and that he can perform well for two years before taking another shot at it.
