Where will J.D. 'Just Dingers' Martinez call home in 2018?

One of the biggest stories of the second half of the 2017 season was the dramatic evolution of J.D. Martinez from Very Good Hitter to Otherwordly Hitter Who Exclusively Hits Home Runs.

After arriving in Arizona via trade from Detroit, Martinez hit 29 home runs in just 62 games. He finished 2017 with a ridiculous .690 SLG%, the highest for any player with at least 450 plate appearances since Barry Bonds in 2004.
