Russell Martin signs with the Pirates

Now what?

The Pittsburgh Pirates apparently overpaid to get Russell Martin a 2 year deal in the neighborhood of 17 Million. Martin spent most of his 2012 season batting below .200, which is ridiculous and any player who hits that low should feel like a complete loser.

Apparently the Pirates don't seem to care about that though as the opened up their pocketbook for Martin.

"I am in complete shock. Someone take my pulse." said Willis Troy after hearing the news. "I think Martin was a little iffy when I saw that he paints his nails. Don't girls do that?"

Now that Martin is off the Yankees radar, who will be on it? Most of the catchers out there don't seem very good.

Should the Yankees start to panic?
