I Sincerely Hope the #RedSox Introudce JD Martinez Tomorrow.

This past Monday, news broke that the Red Sox had an agreement in place with JD Martinez on a five-year contract. Fast forward today, and nothing has been announced by the team yet. He reportedly had a physical on Wednesday, was expected to be introduced via press conference on Thursday, and things went sour from there. Here’s a timeline of tweets to clarify:

Monday:

Tuesday:

To create a spot on the 40-man.

Wednesday:

Thursday:

Today:

Four days since the news broke and JD Martinez is still technically unsigned. I can’t begin to imagine what the reaction would be like here if this deal somehow fell through. I’m not worried too much about it at this moment, but I for sure will be if nothing happens tomorrow. It’s just weird that the announcement has taken this long. Martinez does have health issues, but you would figure the Red Sox were made aware of that before negotiating a contract with him. Also, trading OF Bryce Brentz to the Pittsburgh Pirates to open a roster spot would look really dumb if they knew Martinez came with some concerns. I’m hoping that I will wake up to the official announcement in the morning and will have something to write later in the afternoon, presumably after a press conference.
