Pirates Injury Update: Russell Martin exits with hamstring tightness

Despite a loss on Wednesday, the Pittsburgh Pirates are still putting the pressure on the St. Louis Cardinals as the final day of the season approaches. The Pirates already have a wild card spot locked up and the Cards are just a game and a half up in the NL Central, but Pittsburgh may have to give catcher Russell Martin a day or two of rest after the signal-caller left Wednesday...

First Pitch: Is It a Guarantee That Russell Martin Will Be Gone After the Season?

Pittsburgh Pirates fans have been expecting Russell Martin to be gone at the end of the year. The catcher is having a career year at the plate, and over the last two years the appreciation for catcher defense has gone way up across the league, increasing his value. Complicating the matters further is the fact that the Pirates balked at giving A.J. Burnett more than $12 M last year...

Neal Huntington intends to keep Russell Martin in a Pirates uniform

Pirates catcher Russell Martin knocked in the Pirates’ only run in Sunday’s 1-0 win against the Brewers, helping them inch their way closer to punching at least a ticket to the National League Wild Card play-in game. That came after slugging a go-ahead three-run home run in the eighth inning on Friday to send the Pirates to a late win over the Brewers. Both underscore Martin’s...

First Pitch: Thoughts on Russell Martin For MVP, and the Wild Card Game at PNC

I’ve spent a lot of time the last few weeks working on the stuff you don’t see on the site. Specifically I’ve been preparing for all of the arrangements for the upcoming playoff coverage, along with getting the 2015 Prospect Guide set up. As I discovered last year, when the team you cover makes the playoffs, it can eliminate about a third of the time you have to work on the...

Cubs Rumors: Russell Martin 'perfect fit' for Chicago

The Chicago Cubs are getting closer to becoming a contender. They are starting to see the future now -- Chicago has called up many of their top prospects this September -- and contention does not appear to be too far away.

The Chemistry Russell Martin Brings to the Pirates’ Pitching Staff

You’ve probably heard all about Russell Martin’s work with his pitching staff. It seems that following every good outing, there is a quote made from one of his pitchers about how Martin impacted the game that night. In most cases, these would seem like throwaway lines made out of courtesy from the pitcher to share the success with his teammates. But the comments are made so often...

Why Aren’t More People Talking About Russell Martin?

The Pittsburgh Pirates are just two games out of a playoff spot, and many would argue that this is due in large part to Andrew McCutchen having another MVP-type season. Considering his fWAR and nERD is top-10 in all of baseball, it’d be hard to disagree. However, McCutchen isn’t the only Pirate having an outstanding season, as he’s had some help keeping the squad in playoff...

Russell Martin Will Receive Big Money This Offseason

Russell Martin is arguably the best catcher in all of Major League Baseball. I don’t say that because he plays for the Pittsburgh Pirates and they are my hometown team. I don’t say that because I want to start an argument either but besides Yadier Molina, Martin is the best catcher and some will argue […]
