2013-11-19 13:00:00 (link to chat)Do you think Reese McGuire will ever hit enough to be more than a 2nd catcher in a 2 catcher league? Is there top 10 offensive potential for catchers in the bat?
(jollyRoger from Pitt)
I don't like McGuire's chances of becoming a top-10 fantasy catcher, but his path to maximizing his value is the Russell Martin early-career path: steal bases. (Bret Sayre)
2013-08-08 17:30:00 (link to chat)Mike,12tean H2H ,hr, r, RBI,ave,sb ,xbh.Need a push Wieters has had a off season,available are R. Martin,Avila,Y.Gomes.Looking for a fix.Thanks
(Chesty from New Bern,NC)
Hiya Chesty.

I probably like Wieters more than you do, but of those guys I'd be fine with taking Russell Martin over Matt Wieters. Martin has almost 10 steals (he has 9) and the power numbers are relatively close to Wieters'. I have no problem pulling the trigger there (although keep in mind that Martin goes through BA droughts).

Alex Avila's hot right now but I don't like buying in the middle of the streak. Yan Gomes will get more PT with Mark Reynolds' DFA, but I still am not convinced he's going to be a full timer. Try Martin. (Mike Gianella)
2012-08-01 13:00:00 (link to chat)How much do you look into turn your players around and maximize the value if possible? To be more specific, I thought White Sox were brilliant as they were able to turn controllable RPs to closers then sell it, with the next waves of prospects coming up.
(Jim from Seattle)
Thanks Jim, hoping it's a good day in the Northwest. Very few players remain with your club for an extended period, so as a GM you are always looking an incremental improvement at every position. Your staff and scouts have to always look at ways of maximizing a player's value, sometimes moving a starter to a closer like we did in Chicago with Roberto Hernandez. Switching positions is another way, like we did with Russell Martin in Los Angeles, as we drafted him as a 3B and moved him to catcher. (Dan Evans)
2011-09-20 13:00:00 (link to chat)Any insight to what the Yankees plan to do with catcher over the foreseeable future? Russell Martin will be a free agent but they don't seem ready (if ever) to let Montero catch regularly.
(Detroit Michael from Detroit, MI)
My hunch is that they re-sign Martin and have Romine backing him up, with Montero as the full-time DH and only the occasional rep behind the plate to keep his skills from rusting entirely. That dings his value for sure, but the effects of age and injuries on A-Rod and Jeter serve to remind that this lineup could use an injection of youth. (Jay Jaffe)
2011-09-06 14:00:00 (link to chat)Is Montero an everyday player next year? If so, rough estimate numbers wise?
(Drew from Springfield)
It depends if the NYYs are willing to just live with him at DH with occasional catching appearances. It will be interesting to see what kind of deal they work with Russell Martin after the season. If the Yankees feel its essential that Montero actually wear some kind of glove, well, they're NEVER going to use him regularly. As for next year's numbers, Montero is young enough that he could still evolve considerably, but I could image something like .275/.330/.450. (Steven Goldman)
2011-07-07 13:00:00 (link to chat)Russell Martin is rapidly heading towards worse-than-last-year-dom. Will Cashman do anything about it? Should he?
(ekanenh from Capitol City)
I was wondering about this last night. Jesus Montero is on the disabled list right now, and his season has been on the mediocre side (that he's 21 and at Triple-A not withstanding) even were he healthy. Austin Romine has had a decent Double-A repeater season at Trenton, and I hope that the Montero thing means he gets a little time at Triple-A. Then again, I'm an idiot for thinking the Yankees would ever turn to an internal option. You also have to take into account how well Martin has handled the pitching staff. If he has something to do with veteran retreads like Colon and Garcia doing well, how do you balance that against his offensive non-contributions? It's a difficult decision. Still: .182/.295/.384 May 1- present.

Just a heads up that I will be forced to take a short break to do a radio spot in about 20 minutes. However, you can follow along live at http://baltimore.cbslocal.com/station/1057-the-fan/, and then I'll get right back to you. (Steven Goldman)
2011-05-05 13:00:00 (link to chat)Steve, 2 questions. 1) What are the odds the Yanks trade Montero? (would you?) 2) Favorite flavor of Big League Chew (or any other bubblegum if you arent a BLC guy)?
(dtisch30 from Ithaca)
The chances seem pretty good, because Russell Martin is playing very well and if you don't view Montero as a catcher either because he can't do it or the position is occupied, he's very tough to fit on the diamond for the Yankees, short of their reducing Jorge Posada's role--and maybe they do that as a trade showcase down the line if Posada doesn't heat up in a big way... I haven't been a big chewing gum guy in years, but one that I sort of miss--do they still make this?--is Gator Gum, the Gatorade flavored stuff. It was SO sour, putting a piece into your mouth was like biting into a lemon. My mouth is tingling in memory even as a I type this. I'm not sure if it was a pleasant sensation, but it was enjoyable nonetheless. (Steven Goldman)
2011-04-25 13:00:00 (link to chat)Hey Marc, Russell Martin: Um, huh? Discuss.
(mattymatty2000 from Portland, OR)
What is the only mistake the Red Sox made this winter? (Marc Normandin)
2011-04-25 13:00:00 (link to chat)In a 10 team mixed league I've got great depth at scarce positions with V-Mart and Russell Martin at C and Tulo and Stephen Drew at SS but a few nagging holes in the pitching staff. I can only play 1 utiliity guy so if everyone's healthy at least one of those 4 is on the bench every week. Should I think about trading 1 of them to upgrade my 2 start starter/flavor of the week at SP and Hope-this-guy-vultures-a-save-or-2 at RP, or hold on to my depth and enjoy being able to survive injuries to key positions?
(buddons42 from Detroit)
It's a 10-team mixed, so you should be aggressive. It's not like you will run out of options to pick up, and you don't want to burn innings you could be using because of injuries. (Marc Normandin)
2011-04-05 13:00:00 (link to chat)Will Montero ever play for the Yankees?
(Tom from Work)
Will Russell Martin get hurt before July 31? (Steven Goldman)
2011-04-05 13:00:00 (link to chat)Are you enjoying the opportunity to watch Jorge Posada hit, without having to watch him catch? I am...
(Rob from Andover, CT)
Just to follow up on the other Posada question, yes, I am. A lot! I was prepared to dislike Russell Martin, both because he seemed likely to hit like Joe Girardi and block Montero, but he's taken care of the former by hitting and running the bases (as I discussed in today's Broadside, elsewhere on the site) but also being able to move more than one inch in any direction. It's an incredible novelty to see that in a Yankees catcher. Keep in mind, I think Posada is an unrecognized great, maybe a borderline Hall of Famer, but his defense has been difficult to endure the last few years. It's almost subliminal, but I feel more relaxed watching Martin catch. I imagine I will feel the same way when Jeter finally moves/retires, unless they replace him with someone using a walker. (Steven Goldman)
2011-03-17 13:00:00 (link to chat)So for those of us who are Yankees fans, what can we expect out of Russell Martin? Did Torre really kill all of his future value with overuse?
(cjslawyer from Insurance Capital of the World)
I put a lot of the blame for this on Torre, but for once it's not entirely his fault. To start, Grady Little did the exact same thing in 2007 before Torre got there. Martin also seems to change his workout regimen every year - he's the king of "best shape of my life" guys - and even recently admitted that he wasn't as focused last year as he should have been.

That said, I think he'll look a lot better (if he's healthy) in the Bronx than he did in LA, because the Dodgers and their generally lousy offense were counting on him to be a big cog. With the Yankees, he's just a guy, and particularly he's just a guy to tide you over until Montero/Sanchez/Romine/whomever are ready. The one skill he didn't lose in his decline was good plate discipline, so if he can give you 120 games worth of good OBP and decent defense this year, I think that'll suit the Yankees just fine. (Mike Petriello)
2011-03-24 13:00:00 (link to chat)Greeting from the Banter and congratulations on the next step in your multi-site march towards world domination! Any early personal candidates for your eventual MFY (most frustrating Yankee) of the year? Andruuw Jones has been groundballerrific in the early going, but the 10-cent-head guys, AJ and Joba surely can't be counted out, no?
(Cult of Basebaal from Los Angeles Anaheim of Pasadena)
Hey there Cult. See, to be TRULY frustrating, I feel like the player in question has to be someone you don't totally expect to be frustrating. I think Yankees fans are fully prepared for Burnett and Joba to drive them insane. I'm going with Russell Martin, who has a strong track record of frustrating Dodgers fans that cannot be overlooked. (Emma Span)
2010-05-05 13:00:00 (link to chat)What do you think Wieters' stats will look like by the end of the year? Also, do you think Trembley is playing him a bit too much (wearing him out)? Looks like the Orioles brought out their Sunday lineup mid-week...
(Grizzle from My Nizzle)
I like him for about the same AVG and OBP he has now, but with a bit more power. .280/.340/.430, maybe .440?

Unless of course Trembley pulls a Russell Martin on him and burns him out by July. (Marc Normandin)
2010-03-26 13:00:00 (link to chat)Is Russell Martin just done? Are speedy catchers just always prey to Sick Boy's theory of acting from Trainspotting?
(Cory from LA)
I'm reasonably optimistic, particularly given that he's back to playing ball and won't miss Opening Day due to the groin problem.

You know, for all of the flaws he showed last year, Martin was still the most valuable catcher in the NL this side of Brian McCann and Yadier Molina according to WARP.

All that said, I don't get Trainspotting reference. How does Sean Connery's career fit into all of this? (Jay Jaffe)
2010-03-08 13:00:00 (link to chat)Russell Martin - is his career on the ropes? Was his poor 2009 tied to an injury?
(Gary C. from Trenton NJ)
It's a groin strain not .... I dont know, something bad. Im sure he'd rather not have it, but I dont think we can make any extrapolations, past or future, from an injury that just happens. (Will Carroll)
2009-10-23 16:00:00 (link to chat)How does Torre not pinch hit Thome for Martin? Defend this decision in 10,000 words or less.
(aaronbailey52 from Alaska)
I can't, and that's without even adding in my disgust for Russell Martin over the last two seasons, but that's a story for another day. You get Jim Thome for that specific situation. Do you think the Phillies traded for Matt Stairs to let Pedro Feliz hit in a spot like that? Even if the Phillies counter with Eyre, I'll trust Thome against Eyre more than Martin vs Madson any day of the week. It was just a very poor decision and an example of planning ahead at the expense of the present moment. (Eric Seidman)
2009-10-23 16:00:00 (link to chat)Re the earlier question I sent: is the Martin-Thome decision really that different than the Hughes-Rivera one, other than the state of desperation between the teams?
(mglick0718 from Oakland)
To me the big difference is that Thome is a far superior hitter to Russell Martin, and while Rivera is certainly better than Hughes, Girardi likely believed that Hughes' true talent was on display this year, thinking that he could handle such a situation. Then again, if he felt comfy enough with Hughes to hold a situation as crucial as that, wouldn't he feel comfy with Hughes closing out the ninth inning after Rivera protected that lead? Another difference is that, like you said, the Dodgers season was on the line while the Yankees were, at worst, coming home for 2 games with a 3-2 lead. I don't give either managers a pass, but I can understand Girardi's situation a bit more. (Eric Seidman)
2008-10-17 13:00:00 (link to chat)Last year Jorge Posada had a great year, and Russell Martin was the hot name while Joe Mauer suffered from a hernia and his batting average dropped 60 points, although he had a tremendous defensive season. Has he now regained the reputation as the game's best catcher?
(Wendy from Madrid)
Forget reputation, he is the best all-around catcher and should be considered for MVP. Mauer's a guy who I would have on the very short list of "guys to build a franchise around." (Will Carroll)
2008-05-29 13:00:00 (link to chat)Joe, what do you think of Russell Martin moving to another position in the next few years? It would be dumb for the Dodgers, but would it be smart for Martin individually? He seems to be very comparable to Craig Biggio.
(jtrichey from Indianapolis)
Biggio couldn't catch very well, and speed was a huge part of his value. Martin is a good defensive catcher whose speed is an asset, not a defining thing. He should stay behind the plate for a long time. (Joe Sheehan)
2008-05-27 13:00:00 (link to chat)Joe Torre has stated in the papers that he wants to give Russell Martin rest from catching but still keep him in the lineup at 3B. How will this affect Dewitt, LaRoche and Garciaparra?
(Dodger Fan from California)
Well, first thing, I think this is an indication that Torre is *way* more creative than he's generally given credit for. But my inclination is that I'd just rather give Martin the extra time off than find another place to play him. He has a very, very good bat, but not a Mike Piazza type of bat where you're really killing yourself when he's not in your lineup. (Nate Silver)
2008-05-23 13:00:00 (link to chat)Hi Caleb, thanks for the chat. What do you think of Russell Martin moving from catcher in the next few years? I have been pushing for a move to second base to replace Kent next year. Would the Dodgers be crazy to do it or would he get a nice offensive boost?
(jtrichey from Indianapolis)
I'm not sure you want to move Martin from behind the plate. For one thing, he's a good defensive catcher--career Range Factor of 7.86, compared with 7.28 average, career Fielding Runs Above Average of 21 (in just over two seasons--that's outstanding). He's been having trouble throwing out runners this year--just eight of 38--but in his first two years he caught about 1 in 3. Obviously, good fielding catchers who can hit as well as Martin are just about impossible to find, and hold tremendous value. From what I understand LA doesn't have a catching prospect behind Martin, either--not on the Top 11 prospects (http://www.baseballprospectus.com/article.php?articleid=7094). So I think they should keep him behind the plate.
Jay Jaffe brought up an interesting solution for second base next year: move Blake DeWitt to the position, making room for Andy LaRoche at third. Or heck, maybe you move LaRoche there, if DeWitt keeps hitting like he has (unlikely). I'm not sure either of them can play the position, and I don't think the Dodgers would do it even if they either can, but it's something to think about. At least you didn't give Luis Castillo a four year deal, right?

Did people know that Martin's full name, according to Baseball Reference, is Russell Nathan Coltrane Jeanson Martin? (Caleb Peiffer)
2008-05-20 13:00:00 (link to chat)Three questions: 1) For my Cubs lovin' wife, are the Northsiders for real? They've done well so far, but what are their big questions down the stretch? 2) Is there any light at the end of the Andruw Jones tunnel, or is that the sound of a diesel locomotive? 3) Joe Torre: great manager, or *greatest* manager? Seriously, look at Friday's Dodgers lineup: how could he expect to win?
(scareduck from Still closer to Angel Stadium than Chavez Ravine)
Cubs: for real. Their run differential is the best in all of baseball by a wide margin, and I don't see any of the other NL Central teams being able to hang with them. I think the big questions are whether Rich Hill rediscovers his control and returns to the rotation, and whether Kerry Wood can hold up as the team's closer. Barring injuries, I think they'll be OK, and even with those injuries, they have a bit of depth to either cover from within or make a trade to help themselves out.

Andruw: lots of questions about him today. The upside of his injury is that it may explain some of his struggles, it may force him to get back in shape as he rehabs, and it will give Dodger fans a bit of relief when it comes to the daily drama of the outfield lineup.

Torre: Furcal being hurt certainly takes a bite out of that lineup. But really, Torre's going to have to get over this Russell Martin-at-3B fetish, even though it's only been a total of 37 innings he's played there. It's fine to give him a breather now and then, but when you're stealing at-bats from DeWitt or LaRoche to give them to Gary Bennett, something is definitely wrong. (Jay Jaffe)
2008-03-05 13:00:00 (link to chat)Who will have a better year, Mauer or Martin? How good will Alex Rios be? (a 6'6 OF who can steal 20 can't have too many comparables...)
(Jimmy Ballgame from San Diego)
Russell Martin; you've got a solid line, you know the Dodgers will push him to play a ton of games, and he steals bases. Mauer's power is going to dip according to PECOTA, and that Twins lineup is awful.

I'm still not on speaking terms with PECOTA after seeing the projection it spit out for him this year. Let's revise RF right now and slot him in behind Hermida and ahead of the Kemp/Milledge pair where playing time might be an issue. What do you guys think, should we bump Abreu or Francouer to #11? (Marc Normandin)
2008-02-28 14:00:00 (link to chat)Do you think Torre will rest Russell Martin more, or is there a chance his legs will fall off on September 16th? I am worried that his late season collapse will happen again if the Dodgers don't learn how to take care of him.
(Eddy from Valerie's closet)
I think Torre's experience in getting reliably good work from Jorge Posada over his career (not to mention his own past days with the tools of ignorance) will save Martin from anything like a Jim Sundberg-style wear-down. (Christina Kahrl)
2008-01-24 13:00:00 (link to chat)Does Jason Bay bounce back? And is Russell Martin now the best Canadian?
(Otto from Halifax)
I think Bay bounces back. Perhaps not to his 2006 level but enough to have a very solid year. Yes, I'd have to say Russell Martin is not the best Canadian player, though, despite the Gold Glove, I'd like to see him keep improving behind the plate. (John Perrotto)
2008-01-24 13:00:00 (link to chat)Russell Martin > Erik Bedard?
(DK from NYC)
Good point but good-hitting catchers are hard to find, so I give Martin a slight edge over Bedard. (John Perrotto)
2008-01-23 13:00:00 (link to chat)Two questions: How much of Granderson's breakout last season was a fluke? Should I sell high on Russell Martin?
(eliyahu from Elazar, Israel)
I'd be more inclined to sell high on Granderson than Martin, though both are wonderful baseball players and should continue to be so for the foreseeable future. (Nate Silver)
