At least it wasn't the fastball...Warming up for the ninth inning in his first opening day as the Dodgers' closer, Jonathan Broxton drilled Martin in his protective cup.
"I spiked a slider," Broxton said.
Martin couldn't -- or wouldn't -- dismiss the episode with a shrug of a shoulder the way Broxton did.
"At that moment in time," Martin said, "I wanted to retire."
This could be interesting.
DeWitt played SS in High School, but the majors is a totally different animal. He looked solid at 3rd, adequate at 2nd. Hopefully he can be a passable SS.Torre said he would try to give Furcal a rest in one of the day games following a night game this week, either Thursday in San Diego or Sunday in Arizona. When he does, Blake DeWitt will start at shortstop.
game time! psyched that i get to see this one from the start!
