I don't know that Russell Martin would have signed with the Pirates if the Yankees really wanted him. And all last season, I thought they would be after Pierzynski in free agency because he looks like he would benefit from playing in Yankee Stadium. All of that is just speculation on my part, of course, but the Yankees are in the market for a regular starting catcher, and I don't believe it's because the Pirates forced them to change their plans. I don't see Francisco Cervelli getting the job. I certainly don't see Chris Stewart becoming the everyday starting catcher for the Yankees.
