Oh yeah, we're bitter. From "Martin's two homers propel Yankees" at Yankees.com:
Martin signed a one-year, $4 million deal with the Yankees after dabbling with the idea of catching for the Red Sox, but concerns about durability hovered over Boston's offer. New York needed Martin to take over for 39-year-old Jorge Posada, and the gamble has paid off so far.
"They were interested, but at the same time, they were worried about the injuries that I had," Martin said of the Red Sox. "It really just came down to that the Yankees were much more aggressive."
After admittedly losing some of his focus during those injury-plagued seasons with the Los Angeles Dodgers, Martin said that putting pinstripes on has all the makings of a perfect fit.
"I love the intensity. It's really what I'm all about," Martin said. "It's going to be a fun year from that standpoint."
I'll let Karina sum up my feelings:
I avoided to watch my son playing for the Yankees 'till this afternoon and my heart is broken. It's like knowing the love of your life is with someone else and he treats the other girl better than ever treated you :(
