J.D. Martinez jokes about how Red Sox will troll Astros with music

JD Martinez

One of the flashpoints of the ALDS was the use of the song “New York, New York,” right at the center of a lot of mutual Boston Red Sox-New York Yankees trolling. One Red Sox star warned Friday, however, that you probably shouldn’t expect a repeat in the ALCS.

The Red Sox are preparing to face the Houston Astros in the best-of-seven series, and Boston outfielder J.D. Martinez isn’t predicting a repeat of the team’s musical shenanigans against Houston.

This was, in fact, a major talking point during the ALDS, and the source of some actual anger. While the stakes are high on the field between the AL’s two best teams, the historical animosity off it simply doesn’t exist. Maybe some tensions will be inflamed during the action, but things are probably going to be a bit calmer in terms of trash talk.
