J.D. Martinez: Prophet

Missed this from yesterday, but here's a good piece on the Prophet, J.D. Martinez speaking of a conversation between he and Lyles:

"He was like, 'Man, I need to get a win. I need to get a win.'" I'm like, 'You're going to get your win, and I'm going to hit my first home run that day. Watch.'"

On the clubhouse mentality:
"It's hard coming into an organization where they're making the youth movement, and everyone's kind of just looking at you almost like, 'Oh, they're not supposed to win.' That's how we all felt. They really can't be expecting a lot from us, now let's show them."
