After the Yankees re-sign Andy Pettitte, if he doesn't retire, and Mariano Rivera one of the top things on their list will be to sign a catcher. They would like to have Russell Martin back, but they have not yet made him an offer, according to George King of the NY Post. Martin earned $7.5 million ...
The Yankees are expected to bid to keep catcher Russell Martin this offseason, but it appears that they'll have competition as Andrew Marchand of ESPNNewYork.com has reported that as many as five other teams are interested in him. Among the other teams supposedly interested are the Texas Rangers, Seattle Mariners, Pittsburgh Pirates, the Boston Red Sox, ...
The Yankees had to wait until yesterday to find out that Nick Swisher, Hiroki Kuroda, and Rafael Soriano turned down their qualifying offers and they will now begin to negotiate with free agents with a better idea of how much financial flexibility they will have. They are expected to continue to negotiate with Kuroda and Soriano, ...
The Red Sox already have Jarrod Saltalamacchia and Ryan Lavarnway in place behind the plate next year, but that hasn't stopped them from meeting to consider going after Russell Martin, according to Jon Heyman of CBS Sports.

Yankees fans are going to expect big things this offseason, however their team finished with the best record in the American League and probably needs a few tweaks rather than a major overhaul. The one area where they really need to focus on ...
The Yankees like Russell Martin and want to have him back this season. Yes, he was absolutely putrid offensively for most of the season, but if you haven't noticed already the free agent market for catchers is very thin which makes Martin look like not such a bad option. Unfortunately, as Brian Cashman warns, just because ...
The Yankees catcher Russell Martin is a free agent this offseason and it doesn't appear that they are ready to hand the reigns over the Austin Romine yet. So they may have to turn to the free agent market. Here are the best available catchers this offseason. Mike Napoli, Age: 31, 2012 Salary: $9.4M, 2012 OPS: ...
A year ago, Yankees GM Brian Cashman was comparing Russell Martin to Thurman Munson and broke their unwritten rule by offering him a $20 million, three year contract extension before he hit the free agent market. Then he spent most of this season hitting less than .200 and finished with a .211/.311/.403 line that was good for ...
