J.D. Martinez and his BP iPad no longer a laughing matter

BOSTON — Teammates have long stopped laughing at J.D. Martinez and his iPad.Bostons All-Star slugger is serious about every swing he takes, even in batting practice, and he has the tape to prove it. Get to the park early enough for Red Sox BP, and youll see a pair of iPads attached to tripods, one on each side of the batting cage. When the 30-year-old Martinez steps up, video coordinator Billy Broadbent will point a third iPad at the batters box — Martinezs personal device, which hes used to record his practice cuts since 2015.After batting practice, Martinez retreats to the clubhouse to...

Red Sox shortstop Xander Bogaerts produces at plate and in field like an All-Star

Xander Bogaerts is not going to the All-Star Game, but that is no reflection on the kind of season he is assembling.Playing on a team with five All-Star representatives, including starters Mookie Betts and J.D. Martinez, Bogaerts’ productive first half has played out a bit in the shadows.Still, he’s an important cog in the Red Sox lineup and on the diamond.Bogaerts was in a groove at the plate, hits in 11 of his last 28 at-bats (.393) with an .821 slugging percentage going into last night’s game against Toronto at Fenway Park.Bogaerts has a .522 slugging percentage that is way above his...

Daily Red Sox Links: Putting together an all Red Sox home run derby

Daily Red Sox Links: Putting together an all Red Sox home run derby

Dingers are better when Red Sox players hit them. Speaking of, Mookie Betts is incredible, J.D. Martinez is raking and the Red Sox are the best team in baseball. It has been seven years since a member of the Boston Red Sox was in the home run derby. That drought won’t be changing this year, as nobody from the Sox is on this year’s roster either. Even though J.D. Martinez is tied for the league lead in home runs and Mookie Betts has 23 of his own, that’s probably a good thing. Missing out on the glorious exhibition of dingers could mean both players can maintain their mechanics and...

Red Sox Trade Target: Jedd Gyorko

Red Sox Trade Target: Jedd Gyorko

Losing Dustin Pedroia hurts every game. Maybe it’s time to find someone to play every day in 2018? The Red Sox have been amazing in 2018 - what more can you say about a team on pace for over 100 wins at the start of July? From Chris Sale to J.D. Martinez to Xander Bogaerts to Mookie Betts to Craig Kimbrel it’s been a great first half. But one player they’ve been without nearly the entire season is Dustin Pedroia. And the lack of his presence has been felt on the field. The most recent news on Pedroia isn’t the most encouraging. It’s not the worst, but it’s not the best. Pedroia...

Daily Red Sox Links: How bad are the Red Sox’s All Star snubs?

Daily Red Sox Links: How bad are the Red Sox’s All Star snubs?

Probably not too bad. Plus Mookie Betts might be the best right fielder in Red Sox history, Christian Vazquez is going to miss a lot of time and are we sure Steve Pearce shouldn’t be an All Star? If it were up to fans of the Boston Red Sox, the All-Star Game would feature 25 Red Sox players and nobody else. That is not how the rest of the voting public (including the players) see it. Even though they didn’t get 25 players on the roster, they did get five, which is still pretty great. Congratulations to Mookie Betts, J.D. Martinez, Mitch Moreland, Chris Sale and Craig Kimbrel. Even if...

Martinez, Mookie Betts and Craig Kimbrel — didn’t generate a few claps.It’s just that when a relatively unheralded yet popular 32-year-old veteran got the nod in the players and coaches vote, his teammates were...
