Good things happen to those who wait. The Red Sox didn’t sign J.D. Martinez until late February, nearly two and a half months after the Yankees had acquired Giancarlo Stanton.

It’s been a while since we could take pleasure in some Yankees’ schadenfreude. The Bronx Bombers went a couple of years without making big acquisitions, due largely to their desire to get under MLB’s luxury tax threshold.
