    Can you elaborate on this? Because I have a hard time believing Martin has been more valuable than Yadier Molina - and this is coming from a Brewer-fan who kind of despises Yadier Molina.

    Until the 2011 season, Molina was putting up pedestrian offensive numbers. Molina is the best defensive catcher in the game but until his most recent seasons he was never much of an offensive contributor. Martin has rare qualities for a catcher. He is a mix of some power, some speed, decent OBP and solid defensively. He certainly is not better than what Molina is now but for the time span discussed he provided more value.
    "...it just sounded to me like he felt like he did not do it."

    Russell Martin's contract is backloaded. Speculation is that the Jays will make more moves as this is a signal.

    Why should he be loyal?

    Not saying he necessarily should. He can do what he wants. I've just noticed he seems to sign and quickly with whomever tosses him the most money regardless of situation.
