Interesting comments by Coonelly on the Pirates pregame show yesterday when questioned about Martin.
He said the Pirates have every intention on trying to resign R Martin and they know what he means to this team and how important he is. Basically said they have not approached him at this point because they don't feel the timing is appropriate in the middle of the season but they would like to resign him.
Now that could have simply been an answer that everyone wanted to hear but who knows. I hope it is true though because losing Martin would be a big blow in my opinion.
