Pedro Martínez is clear about what the Boston Red Sox in the major league offseason, making it a priority to bring back the shortstop Xander Bogarts and secure to Raphael Devers for many years.

“I definitely hope the team improves. Hopefully we can agree with those guys, like Bogey (Xander Bogaerts), Devers and the rest,” Martínez told MLB.com.

“As you know, the darkest part of baseball is the negotiations, the economic aspect. It is the dark part that you prefer to avoid, because when you look at ‘Bogey’ and the rest of those who are free agents, great human beings, good for the community, loved and admired by everyone, you would love to have them back, “Martinez said.

“The economics of baseball speak another language. We all have to be aware that there are things that get out of our hands”.
