    Who will be our 2013 first string Catcher?

    Are we going to try to re-sign Russell Martin?

    2007 - .293 BA
    2008 - .280 BA
    2009 - .250 BA
    2010 - .248 BA
    2011 - .237 BA
    2012 - .199 BA - Best in months

    I don't like the trend!

    Where is our next catcher coming from?

    Maybe they can use a pitch back, it may hit better.

    The springs always break on those things. It would always be on the DL.

    I would bet on his club option being picked up, so he probably will never make it to the open market. It doesn't fit in well with the Yankees cost cutting crusade that they're currently on either.

    I agree with this one. Decent pop and might do well at the stadium.

    I like Napoli if you can get him for cheap. But really, Martin is going to be ridiculously cheap this year. Get him.

    Russell Martin

    The Yankees will offer him arbitration and he will take it.

    Once upon a time the Yankees had a "surplus" of "above average" catchers.

    This. And then cross our fingers that Sanchez reaches his ceiling.

    We were spoiled for too many years and are now dealing with what most teams ( maybe not to this extent ) have had to deal with.

    Not every team has a catcher batting .195. You have to upgrade this position next year. Guys are getting older at other positions, and we're probably lose offense in RF next year. We cant afford to carry a black hole. Those days are over.

    yup that basically sums it up
    The real reason why the Yankees keep winning is cause the other team can't stop staring at the damn pinstripes

    Yeah, I'd bet on this. This is about as creative as Cashman gets.

    Right now I wish we could add some offense and spark to the catcher position. I think we have the answer in Cervelli. Our offense needs something and fast.
