Other than a dip in 2020 during a shortened and very strange season, J.D. Martinez has been aces for the Red Sox. Martinez has certainly gotten plenty out of the experience as well, so he isn’t eager to see it come to an end. (Sean McAdam; Boston Sports Journal)

Unfortunately, the cruel nature of baseball transactions doesn’t always line up how a player wants, so Martinez is prepared for anything when it comes to his future. (Christopher Smith; MassLive)

Matt wrote about how the Red Sox will need plenty of pitchers who can eat up innings, particularly out of the rotation. Garrett Whitlock, party of one? (Jen McCaffrey; The Athletic)

Changing one pitcher’s role won’t be enough, but Alex Cora won’t do anything drastic yet, even if he is preparing for all scenarios. (Ricky Doyle; NESN)

By the time you’re reading this, Seiya Suzuki may have already picked which team he will play for in MLB, and it might not be the Red Sox. (Darren Hartwell; NBC Sports Boston)

Kyle Schwarber is about to get a big payday. (Logan Mullen; WEEI/Audacy)
