  • JD Martinez Signs With Bosox

    $110 million for 5 years with two opt outs for JD. Martinez gets more of the money up front so he will have a strong incentive to opt out if he hits well and stays in the lineup.

    I think JD will hit very well while he is in the lineup, but I also suspect he will miss a fair amount of playing time. Maybe being a full time DH will help him stay healthy, but plenty of guys who also weren't very good defensive players chafed at being a DH (not Ortiz, obviously).

    I am sort of mixed on this development, it should provide a good power boost that is much needed but I also had some hope that the Bosox were saving financial resources for a run at signing Bryce Harper next offseason (speaking of being injured too often).
