    Post J.D. Martinez Signs a 5-Year $110M Deal With the Red Sox

    Jon Morosi @jonmorosi
    J.D. Martinezís deal is $110 million over 5 years, sources say. Contract is front-loaded prior to opt-out.

    NOOOOOOOOOO00000000000oooooooooooo!

    I never actually thought the D-Backs had a legit shot at keeping him but now that it's official, I'm a sad panda.

    Whatever happened to all those rumors and Boras asking prices in the $150-$200 million range? lol
    Look, I'm gonna be honest with you. I really need a job. And I will take any position, as long as it doesn't involve having sex with old ladies for money or bear traps. Those are my two bugaboos. While mulling over my resume feel free to check out my baseball card collection, it's small and simple, kinda like me - >>>>> http://s822.photobucket.com/user/JDf...ds%20n%20stuff

    Good news from Steve Gilbert at least: "#Dbacks not necessarily done looking for outfield help. Were going to sign Dyson regardless of what happened with J.D. Martinez."

    Not that I don't like Dyson as a 4th outfielder, but would like a little more oomph in the lineup to cover for Jake Lamb's annual second-half slump.
    I collect all cards of the Arizona Diamondbacks.
    Especially interested in: Brandon Webb, Paul Goldschmidt, Daniel Hudson, Luis Gonzalez, Jay Bell, A.J. Pollock, Steve Finley, David Peralta, Zack Godley, Stephen Drew

    With the right expectations I think it's fine. They won the division without him. I don't expect him to play 150 games. I don't even know if he will be there all 5 years but he can add 30 homers and aid a few win streaks between DL stints...im in.

    You can be upset about it, but mentioning anything about any "panda" in a BoSox FA thread is just below the belt level wrong...
    Don't forget to use the FCB Link when buying on eBay!

    Behold the Lamb of God become a sacrificial Lamb in the second half. It's the one thing you can count on every D-Backs season.

    Interestingly enough giant pandas became herbivores and completely switched their diet to bamboo 2.4 million years ago. BoSox's Panda must not have gotten the message.

    Good deal for both sides. Boston didn’t have to pay a lot and if JD keeps hitting for the next two years he can opt out after making 50 million already.

    Let the games begin!

    Thoroughly excited now for the lineup potential this year. Look out NY! Gonna be some seriously siiiiiiiick games this year between Yanks-BoSox.

    I wish I still had this orange I hit (in a half case of hobby break), but do have the red. And a big bcp/rc lot.

    WTTF/WTB: Looking for Red Sox cards I don't have of players from modern Bowman products. Always open to trade!
