    What won’t come into play during these meetings, but will likely be an important part of this offseason, is signing catcher Victor Martinez to a long-term contract extension.

    The Red Sox exercised the club’s $7-million option on him for 2010 last month, and once general manager Theo Epstein is able to fill in his immediate holes, opening talks on a Martinez extension should be on the to-do list in January, Martinez’s agent said.

    Rhode Island native Alan Nero, Martinez’s agent, was roaming the foyer at the Marriott hotel here on Sunday night. When asked about any discussions he’s had with the Red Sox about Martinez, Nero said there haven’t been any — yet.

    “There’s nothing going,” he said.

    Not yet. But there will be, Nero said, likely in January.
