Boston's J.D. Martinez Trump Visit Didn't Divide Us ... He Was Awesome!!!

Boston's J.D. Martinez, Trump Visit Didn't Divide Our Team!

EXCLUSIVE

Some boycotted, others didn't -- so, how did the Boston Red Sox players get along AFTER that controversial May 9 trip to Trump's White House?

... according to star outfielder J.D. Martinez, everyone handled it VERY well and haven't let politics destroy their clubhouse. 

Remember, Martinez DID go to 1600 Penn a few weeks ago -- despite stars like David Price, Mookie Betts, Jackie Bradley Jr. and manager Alex Cora opting to stay away to protest POTUS.

Martinez says the trip was "amazing" -- and claimed Donald gave the squad an "awesome" private tour of the Lincoln Bedroom, just as he promised. 

The Sox won 3 out of their next 4 games after the White House visit -- and Trump took some credit for the hot streak. 

But, things have cooled off ... Boston's 10-8 since the D.C. trip. 

If Martinez is right -- and everyone's leaving politics off the diamond -- probably a good thing ... right???
