More on Martinez
SAN DIEGO — Something that escaped my sieve-like mind earlier was the development that Giants right-hander Joe Martinez had been moved from the Intensive Care unit at a San Francisco hospital into a regular room. This sounds like the prelude to Martinez’s being releaed from the hospital for good, which was supposed to happen in two or three days. Though he’s on the 15-day disabled list, I’m sure his teammates can’t wait to see him.
In case you missed it, Martinez was hit on the right side of his forehead Thursday against Milwaukee on a drive struck by Mike Cameron. Everyody ates The accident left Martinez with a big black eye, three hairline fractures in his skull, a consission and internal bleeding.
