We’re not gonna say for one second that signing Martinez at this point was a mistake. If you think that he isn’t worth the money then you haven’t been paying attention to which players are getting paid more and producing much less with their respective clubs. Martinez is the real deal and hopefully stays for the rest of his career. Everyone is excited to see what else he can do for the Red Sox. No, it hasn’t been 86 years since we’ve won the World Series but it has been five years which has felt like a lifetime especially with all the changes the club has made.
Can the Red Sox win 106 games to break their historic 105 win campaign back in 1912? Keep in mind that not only did get 105 wins, they ended up winning their 2nd World Series Title and the first of five in a seven year span. Back to the main question, can they do it? Yes, they absolutely can. They’ve got the right tools to make it work.
The Sox could theoretically win their second title in six seasons, perhaps 3rd next year in a seven year span if they can make it back to back. Signing Martinez will go down as one of the two best moves that Sox GM Dave Dombrowski has made since joining the front office in August of 2015. September is among us and the Sox magic number to clench the playoffs is four and the division is 13. Boston Red Sox baseball is looking very fun indeed.
