​Let the competition...begin again? For real?


While it seems like the Red Sox and J.D. Martinez are simply staring each other down for the remainder of the offseason like a pair of lions, circling and waiting to pounce. But if the D-Backs have their way, they'll pop back into the fray and add their 2017 savior back to the mix. After all, they currently have the only other active offer for the slugger on the table, ​albeit sort of a tame one.

Clearly, Diamondbacks owner Ken Kendrick thinks he can find ground with super agent Scott Boras. Amid reports that Martinez is ​reportedly "fed up" with the Red Sox, he believes Arizona can pounce.
