    We almost have no choice, right? He's a very good player and we have no other route to go imo.

    A lot of people will say he'll get payed too much and won't be as good this year, but you're totally right.

    We have a need at catcher. And there's no one else. So it's either gamble on Martin and hope he can be as close to what he's done this year, than have to deal with AJ/FedEx/Butera and their bad offense.

    He's a much better hitter than those three.

    And a better fielder too. AJ is so bad.

    A lot of people have a lot of hate for Martin, but it's about winning games and makes the team better.

    Suggest someone better we could sign before just flatly saying no.

    Even if he regress, he's still a better option than we have now.

    UCLADodger would be able to slap his Russell Martin Fathead back on the wall. This would be all kinds of good.

    VRP's balls would explode if we brought Russ back.

    I think I can overlook my hatred for Martin if it means improving at catcher which is a must.

    Will he help the team? Yes, marginally.

    Are we winning with a black hole behind the plate? Yes, because everyone else is doing their jobs.

    Will somebody (Dodgers or another team) overpay for an over 30 catcher? You betcha.

    Everybody gets overpaid. That's the market.

    Would add a lot of depth to our lineup. I don't expect him to repeat his season this year, but even a small drop off is a huge upgrade over what we have now. Not fun feeling like it is make or break when your 7 hitter is up knowing two automatic outs are behind him.

    Depends on if gets a qualifying offer, I wouldn't pay 3/30+ and give up a draft pick for one maybe two good years.

    Are there no .220 hitting defensive catchers out there FFS? Why the fuck do we have three guys who are so shit? I hate Martin but I will take any damn improvement.

    If AJ Ellis makes himself a world series hero, we give him one more year! If not, even R.J.F.Q Martin or whoever the fuck he was if a far better option.

    IDGAF if he never makes an out the rest of the season, he can fuck off. his OPS+ would still be lower than Greinke.
