How much is Victor Martinez worth to the Tigers?

Victor Martinez would like to remain a Tiger, and the Tigers would love to have him back. But at what cost? How much is Victor Martinez worth to the Tigers? Victor Martinez was arguably the best hitter in the American league in 2014. His weighted on base average (wOBA) of .412 led the league. He was second only to Jose Altuve of the Astros with a .335 batting average, and second only to White Sox first baseman Jose Abreu with a .565 slugging percentage. His strikeout rate of just 6.6% was easily the lowest among all qualified hitters in the major leagues, and he led the league in on base...

NWSB Insider and Seattle Mariners Insider Brian Scott takes a look at who the Seattle Mariners top free agent targets should be for the 2015 season. Would the M's dare to chase down another big money free agent? One of the biggest names out there has to be the Tiger's Victor Martinez.

Victor Martinez is the Tigers' 2014 MVP

Don't overthink it. Sometimes, baseball writers will try to out-smart themselves when looking for an MVP or Cy Young award winner. They will look at numerous stats (or ignore them completely) and often lose sight of the big picture. This is not one of those times. Victor Martinez was the Tigers' Most Valuable Player in 2014. Could you make a case for someone else? Sure. Ian Kinsler led the team with 5.5 WAR. Miguel Cabrera was right on his heels with 5.4 WAR. Cabrera led the team with 109 RBI and, despite his injuries, still ended the year with a 147 wRC+. J.D. Martinez came out of nowhere...

Why did Chris Sale really throw at Victor Martinez?

Why did Chris Sale really throw at Victor Martinez?

Don't lap up the MSM propaganda Chris Sale hit Victor Martinez in the sixth inning. The Twitterverse speculated that it had to do with Sale believing a man with binoculars -- possibly partially submerged in the GM Fountain -- was relaying signs to Martinez. The above picture -- allegedly showing Sale tipping his cap to Binoculars Man after striking Martinez out in the third -- is cited as evidence. Additionally, Sale allegedly gestured towards the Binocularati after he hit Martinez. This picture of Sale is also cited: Who was Sale pointing to earlier in the game in the outfield? A guy...
