VIDEO: JD Martinez Hits a Stinger Around Yankee Stadium Foul Pole to Give Red Sox Early Lead

JD Martinez does not care for your narrative. Despite losing a disappointing series at the hands of the Tampa Bay Rays, the Red Sox enter their tilt at Yankee Stadium with every opportunity to put a dent in their current Wild Card deficit, and against their rivals no less. Martinez got the Sox off to a fast start.

Typical, indeed. Martinez has favorable splits against New York, which is in part why Red Sox fans would like to see him stay this winter.
