WASHINGTON, D.C. -- There is little debate that the Red Sox made a wise move in committing to J.D. Martinez this past offseason. It wasn't cheap, but the price they got the slugger (five years, $110 million) is appearing to be a relative bargain. The issue, however, is those opt-outs. Martinez can...

Scott Boras was just arriving at Dodger Stadium Wednesday, having just finished lunch with a few of his Cubs clients, when he received the news. J.D. Martinez just hit his 25th home run. This was the latest round of vindication. "We’re not at all surprised that he got his 25th home run. When you’re...

J.D. Martinez's first order of business, once he realized he'd be spending more time than expected in Fort Myers: buy some clothes. Martinez had packed lightly when he landed in the Fort last week, expecting the finalization of his contract to be a formality. But when the Red Sox saw something they...

FORT MYERS, Fla. -- He's the original J.D. He was forced to lean on Scott Boras during the kind of awkward waiting game in which J.D. Martinez currently finds himself. Initials aside, few have a better perspective on this standoff between the Red Sox and their current free agent target than J.D...

The Red Sox have an announcement to make: They have no announcements to make. That means, for a second straight day, no introduction of J.D. Martinez, the free agent slugger who recently agreed to a five-year, $110 million contract. The Red Sox had converted the media dining room into a press...

FORT MYERS, Fla. -- Maybe the Red Sox knew what they were doing all along. Same with J.D. Martinez and his agent, Scott Boras. Let's start with Martinez's new team. After more than a year of wearing out the "They should have signed Edwin Encarnacion!" conversation, Dave Dombrowski shoved it back in...

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. -- There doesn't seem to be any hard feelings. Not like the old days, anyway. Times were different when Dave Dombrowski was running the Tigers and the perception was that Scott Boras would attempt to expedite deals for his clients by going over the general manager's head and...
