Look what people have to say about the RLYW!

CAIRO just takes the Marcels and changes the underlying assumptions and components in a bunch of ways that make the Yankees look better.

Wow, two stupid posts in one day. I think you’ve reached your yearly quota.

I don’t know if any of you current posters were around for that, but if so, I just can’t understand how you can call yourselves Yankee fans. Pathetic quitters is what you sounded like. Of the lame posts I could stand to read, the only person who had any confidence in the Yankees at that point was a (yeesh) Red Sox fan.
Jeter is King

Quite the attitude you have SG. Maybe you should shitcan this blog and join Steve at WasWatching? Or follow some other stupid team that has made the PS 15 of the last 17 years. Jeez… and some people think Yankee fans are entitled.

Yankees.com: Yankees agree to contract with Martin

NEW YORK—The Yankees have agreed to terms on a contract with free-agent catcher Russell Martin, multiple sources told MLB.com on Tuesday. Details of the deal were not immediately available, but it is expected to be announced at some point on Tuesday.

The Bombers missed out on Cliff Lee late Monday night, when the ace left-hander spurned them—and the Rangers—to sign with the Phillies. But New York also beat out Boston and Toronto—though in a far lesser way—to obtain the services of Martin, who was non-tendered by the Dodgers this offseason.

Who needs Cliff Lee?

Here are Martin’s range of CAIRO projections.

Player martin, russell
% PA H 2B 3B HR SB BB SO avg obp slg wOBA BR BRAR Def WAR
80% 552 133 25 1 13 13 74 72 .279 .388 .421 .365 76 38 4 4.2

20% 492 104 17 0 8 8 56 63 .246 .332 .340 .306 49 15 0 1.5

BRAR: Linear weights batting runs above replacement level (park and position-adjusted)
wOBA: Weighted on-base average
Def: Projected runs saved defensively compared to average
WAR: Wins above replacement level (BRAR plus Def divided by 10)

Martin’s coming back from an injury to his hip, which isn’t a good thing for a catcher, so he’s not without risk.  However, he’s not far removed from being one of the better catchers in baseball

He shores up the Yankees’ depth, and he doesn’t cost the team any talent, so it’s hard to not like this move.
