Everyone Made Same Joke About Reported Red Sox-Chris Martin Deal

No, not the Coldplay singer


December 3, 2022

Sometimes the jokes are just too easy to resist making, and that was the case for the Red Sox on Friday.

Boston reportedly signed relief pitcher Chris Martin to a two-year deal to help bolster its bullpen.

If you thought his name sounded familiar, it’s probably because it is. The lead singer of Coldplay also is named Chris Martin and as you can guess, Twitter all ran with the same joke when ESPN’s Jeff Passan reported the news.

Martin finished the 2022 season with the Los Angeles Dodgers and had a 1.46 ERA in 26 games. The right-hander finished the season 4-1 with a 3.05 ERA between LA and the Chicago Cubs.
