It is, but I also thought the Red Sox made out like bandits by getting Marte for Renteria. Renteria and Crisp are good players but not the type of guys you ought to be getting in return for the top prospect in baseball, as Marte was considered last winter. So the obvious explanation is that Marte's stock has slipped.
