Corona will be biggest factor this season

J.D. Martinez thinks COVID-19 will play the biggest role in who benefits from this season’s shortened schedule.

“It’s crazy to say it, but I have a feeling that this season is going to come down to what team can stay healthiest and what team can stay corona-free,” NBC Sports Boston reports the Red Sox DH said on a Sunday video conference with reporters.

“One blow to a team with corona and you knock out two or three of the star players,” Martinez added.
