J.D. Martinez landed in Boston in 2018. In his first year playing with the team, he was named MLP All-Star and placed fourth in the MVP race.
He scored 43 home runs and finished the campaign with 130 Reserve Banks this season. He had a great year in 2019, but in 2020 he had a very tough season and then dropped a little bit.
Despite this, the main man told the media that he wanted to end his life in Boston and that he wanted to become a Red Sox legend.
