Martinez switched agents last year because of Scott Boras' track record of negotiating seven-year deals for free-agent outfielders (Matt Holliday, Jayson Werth, Jacoby Ellsbury, Shin-Soo Choo). But with spring training set to begin next week, the best offer he has gotten is a five-year proposal reportedly worth $125 million or so from the Boston Red Sox. Needless to say, Martinez must be feeling, well, underfed. Probably fed up, too, as The Athleticís Ken Rosenthal reported this week, with a historically lethargic market, with the starved-for-power Red Sox and maybe even with Boras, though heís hardly the only agent having a difficult time making deals.

As much as the two-time defending American League East champions need Martinez -- and make no mistake, they really need him after hitting the fewest homers in the league last season and seeing the New York Yankees pair Giancarlo Stanton with Aaron Judge -- they also donít feel pressure to up the ante at a time when Martinez isnít exactly being inundated with offers.

The sides will come together eventually, right? Right? Well, what if they donít? What if the Arizona Diamondbacks step up their offer enough that Martinez stays in the desert, where he would also remain in Womens Ryan White Jersey his preferred role as an outfielder and work with personal hitting coach/close friend Robert Van Scoyoc? Or what if a mystery team enters the fray? Or what if Martinez really is fed up enough to spurn Boston?
ďWe expect to improve and I would hope to improve with a big bat in the middle of the lineup,Ē team chairman Tom Werner said recently. ďBut there are also other ways to improve.ĒSay, for instance, swinging a trade for Josh Donaldson or Manny Machado before July 31. By then, both sluggers are expected to be on the Jeff Allen Youth jersey doorstep of free agency. If the Toronto Blue Jays or Baltimore Orioles arenít in wild-card contention, they could opt to trade their superstars.
The Red Sox wonít suddenly have more elite prospects in their depleted farm system to use as trade bait. But for a two-month rental, the asking price wonít be nearly as high as it was this winter for Chicago White Sox first baseman Jose Abreu or St. Louis Cardinals outfielder Marcell Ozuna, both of whom are under contract beyond this season.
Hereís a thought: Sign free-agent third baseman Moustakas and move young Rafael Devers across the infield to first base, where many scouts project he might wind up eventually. Or use Devers as the primary DH and let Mitch Moreland and Ramirez split time at first base. Either way, Moustakas would help boost the middle of the order. He hit 38 homers and slugged .521 for the Kansas City Royals last season, and at Authentic Nick Easton Jersey age 29 heís firmly in his prime. Like Martinez, Moustakas is repped by Boras, but Dombrowski must already have him on speed dial.
If Moustakas is too far outside the box, the market will present other options. With more than 100 free agents unsigned, one-year contracts might be offered up as easily as sunflower seeds and bubble gum. First basemen/DH Logan Morrison (38 homers last season for the Tampa Bay Rays) and Lucas Duda (at least 27 homers in three of the past four seasons) could fall into that category, along with outfielders Carlos Gonzalez and Carlos Gomez.
Sign J.D. Martinez! Look, it would be one thing if the Sox were taking advantage of this marketís nearly unprecedented dormancy by low-balling Martinez. But their reported offer Kenyan Drake Youth jersey is comparable to other recent contracts for free-agent outfielders, including Yoenis Cespedes' four-year, $110 million deal with the New York Mets last winter. And if the competition for Martinez increases, the deep-pocketed Sox can afford to kick in more cash or even an extra year.

Signing a one-year deal somewhere else and going back out into free agency next winter doesnít make sense for Martinez, especially considering the 2018-19 megaclass of Bryce Harper, Machado and Donaldson. Martinez is still the marquee name in this market, and if he accepted the Red Soxís offer today, he would be its first -- and possibly only -- nine-figure signee. Itís true Martinez went into this looking for a six- or seven-year deal worth about $30 million per year, and his disappointment at not receiving it would be undeniable. But at least he has a legitimate offer on the table, which is more than most free agents in this market can say. In the end, the Red Sox are banking on him taking it.
The Boston Red Sox have offered J.D. Martinez a five-year, $125 million contract, an offer that The Athleticís Ken Rosenthal reported has left Martinez ďfed upĒ with the Red Sox and that he would rather sign with another team. Evan Drellich of NBC Sports Boston also talked with Scott Boras, Martinezís agent, on Tuesday, and Boras said Martinez was prepared to begin spring training without a contract.
