Re: Pirates sign Russell Martin (2 years, $17 mil)
Martin was very good defensively for the Yankees, but struggled at times offensively and had some on and off back issues. I think Pittsburgh overpaid.
If the Reds really thought Mes was ready, I bet the Yanks would love to have Hanigan. But I didn't see anything from Mes last year that would lead me to believe that he could handle the starting role.
