Red Sox slugger J.D.Martinez an early favorite over Giancarlo Stanton

The baseball jury is getting enough prima facie evidence to formulate an opinion on a baseball issue that resonates with Red Sox fans – Giancarlo Stanton versus J.D. Martinez.

Did the Red Sox make the right choice? Historic evidence is that Stanton was a sought-after commodity by the Red Sox but Boston was never willing to part with the expected transaction chips, nor was Stanton interested in The Athens of America – at least on the surface.

Stanton and Martinez both have one notable quality the Red Sox organization has longed for – right-handed power.
