If Martin knows he can get maximum value for Bouw right now instead of the trade deadline and he is still sticking to his "no trade" guns, then you have to imagine that Bouw's camp has yet to give a definitive answer that they don't want to sign here long-term. If Martin thinks he has a shot -- getting the one-year deal in arbitration and playing through February -- to prove to Bouw that this organization is on the right path, then he'll take it.

And the way I'm looking at it is, no news is good news. Besides the "sources" saying Bouw doesn't want to be here, neither Martin nor Bouw's camp has stated this to be true. Until they do, I'll just assume that they're still trying to hammer something out.
