LETSSSSSSSSSS GOOOOO! Although it took much longer then everyone thought, the deal is finally done, and J.D. Martinez is coming to Boston. The wait actually paid off, as the Sox got a pretty good deal on J.D. To the people who hate this deal, shut up please. Harper or Machado are not coming here, and this team is great right now, so why not get that power bat we have been missing since Big Papi retired? I was watching J.D. highlights the other night, and was straight up salivating at his power. Dude just crushes oppo field home runs like its not ones business. Put him fourth in the lineup, and you finally have a batter pitchers are scared to face. Last year you didn’t have that, you had Dustin “The Dirt Dog” Pedrioa, who pitchers probably laughed at. And the whole Yankees aspect of this season, I am still not sold on them winning the AL East, and that was before the Martinez signing. CC Sabathia had a great season last year, that isn’t happening again, he is fat and old, and that will show this season. Their lineup is scary, but what happens when Judge doesn’t start off the season like he did last year, and him and Stanton go on cold streaks? And that rotation is still sub par. Instead of adding to the rotation, the Yankees went out and got more power. Don’t get me wrong, they will be good, but I think with the addition of Martinez, bounce back seasons from the guys last year, and our rotation with a full season of Price, the Sox will take the AL East for the third straight year. Can Baseball season please start already?
