Adrian Beltre has decided to call it a career. It’s a sad day for baseball fans since he was one of the best players to watch. (Craig Edwards; FanGraphs)

For Red Sox fans, Beltre’s retirement is a reminder of the problems they’ve had at third base ever since he left. (NBC Sports)

While the Sox didn’t bring Beltre back after one great year, they did bring back Steve Pearce. It’s possible he’s not the only guy who will return. (Chad Jennings; The Athletic) ($$)

If the whole band gets back together, is another year of scoring more than everyone in store? (Alex Speier; Boston Globe)

J.D. Martinez was one of the key components of that high-scoring offense, but he didn’t win the Edgar Martinez Outstanding DH award. Why? (Logan Mullen; NESN)

David Robertson’s home is in Rhode Island. He wants to pitch close to it. Fenway Park is a whole lot closer to the Ocean State than any other ballpark. (Chris Cotillo; MassLive)
