J.D. Martinez is very much on a mission this season to go out and prove 2020 was not indicative of who he is at this stage of his career. He, uh, is succeeding. (David Schoenfield; ESPN)

As John Tomase writes, last offseason there were many who would have wanted to give him away for basically nothing. Now, he’s indispensable. (John Tomase; NBC Sports Boston)

It turns out Martinez also has some jokes. (Christopher Smith; Masslive)

Martinez was clearly the story of the day on Sunday, but Alex Cora made sure to give some love to Nick Pivetta as well, who was not only solid on the mound but also made a heads up, athletic play. (Adam London; NESN)

Perhaps we should stop the talk of the Red Sox being “sneaky” good. (Rob Bradford; WEEI)

Jason Mastrodonato is not yet ready to go all in on this team. (Jason Mastrodonato; Boston Herald)

This upcoming stretch on the schedule should be a big test for this Red Sox team. (Sean McAdam; Boston Sports Journal)

Sox Prospects has some scouting updates on a few of the mid-tier prospects in the system. (Ian Cundall; Sox Prospects)
