    I don't know whether the JDM dual award is awesome or stupid. Oh wait, yes I do.

    Reminds me of Khalil Mack being All Pro at two positions.

    Martinez, Martinez and Betts
    I am reminded of a Groucho line
    "Gonsalez, Gonsalez and Mark
    two guys and I get third billing!"

    No worse than Rafael Palmeiro's Gold Glove at 1st in a season where he played 28 games there.

    We're loaded in the outfield. DD should consider dealing OF Martinez for bullpen help and hold on to DH Martinez...

    Boras has a new bargaining point. I’m not even slightly kidding.

    I think it’s hilarious that JD Martinez won two silver sluggers and Aaron Judge won zero silver sluggers.

    You really want to break up the set? They're very rare.

    Wrong. He should trade DH Martinez and move OF Martinez to DH.

    OF Martinez has more trade value, because only an AL team would want DH Martinez.

    Mike Shalin, who writes for the New Hampshire Union Leader, said in his sports column today:

    "Let's get this straight" J.D. Martinez was a DH too much of the time to finish second in the MVP voting. He then became the first player to ever win the Silver Slugger at both OF (57 games) and DH. Then he loses the award as the top DH (to Khris Davis) because he played too many games in the outfield."
