Russell Martin Runs His Mouth About Rivalries He Barely Even Knows

Trying in vain to endear himself to Yankee fans before they cast him and his .236 average to the curb, Russell Martin has piped up to the press saying he hates the Red Sox.

NEW YORK -- Adding fuel to baseball's bitterest rivalry, New York Yankees catcher Russell Martin said he hates the Boston Red Sox and would relish adding to their misery by helping to eliminate them from the playoffs during this weekend's series between the two teams.

"Anything to get the Red Sox out would be awesome for me," said Martin, who has been involved in the rivalry for one season.

When asked why, Martin sounded like the truest Bleacher Creature.

"Because I hate the Red Sox," Martin said.

Oh, yeah, Russell, you of the not-even-one-year Yankee term. I'm sure that rivalry runs really deep.

How pathetically transparent.

He's just warming up for next year when he's catching for Toronto (backing up Jose Molina, no doubt) and is embroiled in the Toronto/Baltimore rivalry.

Whoo boy, shit gonna fly then.

I, too, hate that guy.

I have purchased my ticket for Monday's Dodgers/D-Backs tilt. I'll be right behind the Dodger bullpen.
