Boston Red Sox outfielder J.D. Martinez is ready to move on.

Negative commentary has been predominant since MLB released its official findings from an investigation into that Houston Astros that found the organization to have illegally used in-game technology to steal opponents’ signs throughout their 2017 World Series-winning campaign.

“I understand players’ frustrations and stuff like that, but I think in my opinion, it’s already getting a little bit too much,” Martinez said Monday, per ESPN’s Joon Lee.

The three-time All-Star continued:

“We have to move past it at some point. We can’t continue to talk about it. I know it’s frustrating right now. People want to talk about it, this and that, but it’s 2020. I think teams are aware of everything that’s kind of happened. … From here on out, it’s going to be a different message in the clubhouses and a different environment with people, like steroids. The punishments were so harsh that people weren’t going to attempt to think about doing anymore. I think it will get to that point.”
