thanks for the memories, JD
I hope the D-backs can come up with someone to protect Goldy in the lineup. There is no one on the roster now (except JD, of course) who fits that bill.
If not, the two power positions in the batting order will take a step back. And the D-backs will not be a playoff contender.
IMHO the Diamondbacks were a playoff contender without JD Martinez. WIthout him? Not a threat to beat the LAD.
But then again we did not win a game against the LAD with him in the lineup.
Goldy's numbers were much better last year before the JD trade. AJ and Lamb need to put it together for a full season.
Lamb did protect Goldy during the first half of the season, before falling by the wayside for the second year in a row. Imagine what Goldy's final numbers would have looked like without JD.
More importantly, numbers do not tell the whole story. If Goldy is not given a pitch to hit in the clutch situations, we lose, regardless of his overall numbers.
There are a lot of power hitting options in free agency, the problem is they mostly play 1B.
Give Cargo a 1-yr deal.
I was for this until I realized Boras is his agent. No way he signs short term or cheap.
In this article, JD Martinez is listed as THE top of 101 free agents.
Thanks for the memories, JD.
As a full time player yes. Hence the 1 year deal.
Of course he’s going to say that. The more teams interested the higher the price goes. Unless ARZ sheds Greinke’s salary they aren’t serious suitors especially with Goldschmidt and Ray deals coming up.
