Andrew Marchand of ESPN New York has a source telling him what Russell Martin’s contract demands are:
I’m told Martin is looking for four years and $9-10M per. Doubt Yanks will do that.

$10 million is what Curtis Granderson and Hiroki Kuroda made this past season. With the Rangers, Mariners, Pirates and Red Sox all reportedly in the mix, you’d think that someone would give him something close to that in average annual value, even if they aren’t willing to go four years on a catcher.
