I think he won't get in, but you could make a case for him. He was a really good hitter and probably the best defender in the game for a stretch.
Batting average and RBIs are terrible ways to evaluate players' values. But a good bit of hall voters don't seem to realize that....

The Monitor is my favorite TA album (it's my favorite album of the 10s), but I do really love The Airing of Grievances.
I'd give The Monitor 5 stars, AoG 4.5 and Local Business 4....

New album is one of my favorites of the year.
Attack on Memory is one of my favorites of the decade.
In short, I am a big fan. Saw them in Nola back in April....

He is a great defensive catcher and he gets on base. I agree the last two years of this deal will likely be a disaster. Toronto better hope he provides surplus value in the early years especially while Bautista and Encarnicion are still beasts....

Lucroy, Posey and Molina are the only ones I would definitely take over him....
| More Sports Board|| re: Russell Martin to Toronto..5 yrs/$82M - The Seaward on 11/17/14 at 1:17 pm|
I think it probably is a slight overpay, but judging Russell Martin's value solely on his batting average would be like saying Chris Paul is overpaid because of his number of blocked shots per game. ...

The only way he would opt out is if his market value was above his remaining contract. Player options are a lose-lose for the team....

As others have said that Pavement rip-off comment was total bull shite. Pixies and Built to Spill are bigger influences anyway.
Maybe my favorite band ever. Top 5 for sure. Love all their work, but Moon and Antartica and Lonesome Crowded West are my favorties....

I'd take Stanton over Abreu. I'd say Tulo is the second or third best position player if healthy (which I realize is a big if)....

Kershaw was a no brainer. Kluber and Felix were pretty much a statistical deadheat, sad that they both couldn't get it. I actually figured Felix would win....

Modest Mouse- Lonesome Crowded West
