The baseball writers have elected a stellar class of 2019 to the Hall of Fame: the greatest closer of all time, the greatest DH of all time, the best pitcher of the 2000s and the most underrated starter of the past 25 years. Welcome to Cooperstown, Mariano Rivera, Edgar Martinez, Roy Halladay and Mike Mussina. And Rivera goes in with an exclamation point: the first unanimous selection by the BBWAA.

Russell Martin, asked about Matt Kemp's resurgence in 2018 (in the first half, at least): "There's something about putting on that Dodger uniform that can bring out some magic in you, and hopefully I can get some of that magic this year."

Russell Martin, 36 in February: "It's a big year for me. I need to have a good year, or else nobody's going to want to have me. It's really simple."

Martin hoping to catch 'magic' with Dodgers

The Dodgers, who were looking for help at catcher, have acquired veteran Russell Martin from the Blue Jays in exchange for two minor leaguers.

Russell Martin, coming to the Dodgers in a trade, is a .208 hitter in 181 games over the last two years, but has been on base 34 percent of the time. Ranked 6th among 78 catchers in pitch framing last year, based on ESPN metrics, but hasn't thrown out more than 22 percent of base-stealers the last three years.

When he was Tampa Bay's bench coach, Charlie Montoyo organized and called the Rays' various defensive shifts. He's bringing some of them — and the "opener" — to Toronto. "I've seen it work, so we're going to use all this stuff." We'll see how much. Oh, and as a shift proponent, he's all about keeping the defensive rules the way they are. "They're big-league players. They should make an adjustment; and I think they will."

Blue Jays first-year manager Charlie Montoyo on the biggest difference he's had since taking over in Toronto: "I had a lot of friends before. I have even more now." That quip brought a lot of laughter from reporters. One of his newest friends is Jays CF Kevin Pillar, who Montoyo called just after he took the job. Pillar was on his way to Japan at the time. Said Pillar during the brief mid-air phone conversation: "I can't wait to throw champagne on your head."
