POLL: Half Want Free-Agents Martinez And Santana

Our most recent FenwayNation Poll results show that fully half of our readers (50%) prefer that the Red Sox sign both J.D. Martinez and Carlos Santana as free agents. As the chart shows, the next most popular off-season option (28%) is the signing of Martinez and Eric Hosmer. Thus, almost four readers in five (78%) prefer one of these free-agency routes to solve Boston's power shortage. Just 14% support a trade for Giancarlo Stanton, while 4% see getting another starter as the top priority. Only 3% picked an option not listed in the poll. So, sentiment in The Nation is pretty clear: they want Dave Dombrowski to spend some of John Henry's cash on prime free agents—but not further rob the farm or roster by trading for Stanton.
