    Russell Martin now a Pirate

    Well now that he is no longer a yankee I figured this thread belongs here. Best of luck as a pirate!

    This is very unfortunate. I liked Martin. Was hoping he'd stick around a while.

    Yankees are going to use an old beach chair behind home plate for 2013.

    No it has to be one of those white plastic chairs you use on deck furniture. It's got the perfect strike zone.

    The last time the Pirates beat the Yanks was 1960.

    well I guess Austin Romine will be fast tracked to the starting role. Either him or Cervelli
    The real reason why the Yankees keep winning is cause the other team can't stop staring at the damn pinstripes

    As much as I would love to see Romine be able to take over as starting catcher, handing him the job outright would be a very bad idea.

    He needs to string together some consistency at the plate and be able to stay healthy.

    The Yankees weren't out bid. They never made him an offer.

    Made that comment based on the ESPN comment that flashed at the bottom of the headline screen on my ESPN app on my phone which said, "Source: Pirates outbid Yankees to add Martin"

    I heard the Yankees offered a 1-year $10M deal but wouldn't match the Pirates offer of a 2nd year
