J.D. Martinez won two Silver Sluggers this year and some people, including his agent, think he should have been an MVP candidate. According to Evan Drellich, he might be open to free agency again soon, as will teammate Xander Bogaerts. (Evan Drellich; NBC Sports)

Bill James doesn’t know everything about baseball, as exhibited by this awful take. (Tom Ley; Deadspin)

Both the Red Sox and many players are obviously not down with James’ erroneous comments. (Gabe Lacques; USA Today)
