Custom Card of the Day: Martin Edition
I mean, not while he was with the Dodgers. While he was with the Yankees. Did you think he'd get back to the top? I certainly didn't. And now here he is, one of the surprisingly consistent anchors of a vengeful Pirates team, fighting to get back to the top.
I've always had a soft spot for these Pirates teams, the McCutchen led ones, because I think he's a great player, and because the teams are always a lot of fun. Martin is just adding the fun in. I didn't really like him as a Yankee (neither did anyone else), but I think I like him again.
I want the Pirates to get far in the playoffs. I'm not exactly sure that they will, but I want them to. I want somebody to root for this year.
Coming Tonight- One of the best pitchers in the AL, on the exact team that nobody wants him to be on.
