This offseason has been one of the slowest I can remember. The only moves the Red Sox have made are re-signing Mitch Moreland and avoiding arbitration with pitchers Steven Wright and Carson Smith. But, the Red Sox need to make some sort of bigger move. And it needs to be sooner rather than later.
There is one question that I have been asking myself constantly since the Red Sox signed Mitch Moreland.. What are the Red Sox going to do if they don’t sign J.D. Martinez? Although my optimism for the signing of Martinez is fairly high, I still am worried about not signing him.
Well, in case you missed it, the Yankees traded for Giancarlo Stanton for basically nothing. Evidently, Derek Jeter still thinks he is apart of the Yankees organization. Now that this trade has happened, the Red Sox have to do something to respond.
