The Yankees picked up Russell Martin last year after the Dodgers failed to offer him a contract. Martin had put forward two consecutive seasons of decline in L.A. In 2007 and 2008 he was among the best all around catchers in baseball, posting wOBA’s of .368 and then .351. After that his body [...]
We’re finally days away from Spring Training. Soon enough, the waiting will be over and we’ll be able to watch REAL LIVE BASEBALL (shameless plug time: if you’re in the NYC metro area, you should totally come to this). But, before we get to that, let’s take another look at some run scoring [...]
Last year, Russell Martin’s praise came from his impressive work behind the plate, somewhat of a rare sight for Yankee fans. After a hot April start, where he OPS’d .963, his bat seemingly slowed down and waned into an afterthought. Russell Martin’s .237/.324/.408 2011 triple-slash was still above average, and most importantly he [...]

2011 was an important year for Russell Martin. After two All Star-caliber seasons for the Dodgers in 2007 and 2008, he was basically cast aside like an old mitt after experiencing serious decline, much of it likely injury-related, [...]
Back in mid-December, I wrote a piece in which I crowd-sourced a possible Russell Martin contract extension. I think it’s worth revisiting now, considering how the catching circumstances in the Yankee organization have changed.
Obviously, Jesus Montero is no longer an option at catcher for the [...]
Way back on December 8th, I ran some WAR projections using ZiPS. Today, I’m going to the same, using the same simple WAR calculator, but this time I’ll be using averages of the Bill James and RotoChamp projections found on FanGraphs player pages. Click through for the fun.
Good Monday morning, TYA readers! If you’re a Jets or Giants fan, I assume you’re still trying to wash the taste of yesterday out of your mouth. To help, here’s some frivolity, projecting how many runs the Yankees could score in 2012. We’ll be using the Lineup Analysis tool from Baseball [...]
Contract extensions are a rare thing in Yankee-land. Despite that, we heard a very vague rumor about the Yankees looking into extending catcher Russell Martin. Since I’m generally a wimp and like to test the waters first, I asked people on Twitter last night to give their opinions on [...]
There were a few things about Russell Martin that were unsurprising last year. He turned in a solid walk rate of 10.5%, which was obviously good, but just short of his career rate of 11.5%. Martin also provided solid defense behind the plate. Those are two things we’ve definitely come to expect from [...]
The other day, I ran through some pitcher projections. Yesterday, I stumbled across this simple WAR calculator from Wahoo’s on First. Using that, let’s project the WARs (not doing any trades, so we can’t add ‘em up, you guys) and get nuts. For the appropriate projected numbers, [...]
