#7: Keep J.D. Martinez
Speaking of the success of J.D. Martinez in Detroit, my 2017 wish list is that he gets a hefty contract to stay in Detroit. I’m on the J.D. train and I have been since his first impressive season in Detroit. He may not be the best right fielder in the game, but he carries his weight on the team. He’s got a cannon for an arm and his bat is a weapon. He also heals quickly.
As the MLB strives to gain young fans, J.D. Martinez is a player that can do it. Kids love him because he seems just like them out there appreciating every single moment doing something they love.
