Yankees Hot Stove: Martin vs Pierzynski

Since the New York Yankees did not make a qualifying offer worth $13.3 million to catcher Russell Martin makes him a free agent, and gives GM Brian Cashman another vacancy to fill.

It is again that time of year when free agent rumors dominate baseball headlines.
