Still No Resolution To The J.D. Martinez Physical Fiasco

Nothing to see here—move along, Red Sox fans. Well, there was supposed to be a press conference today announcing that the "logistical" issues surrounding the J.D. Martinez signing had been ironed out. Not quite. It was announced late this afternoon that—in fact—there will be no Thursday presser to that effect. And, obviously, Dave Dombrowski's earlier prediction that Martinez would be fully in camp on Friday is also in jeopardy. The "specialists" attached to the Red Sox medical team apparently have not had enough time to review tests related to past injuries—like the ones to the right foot and elbow of Martinez. This is probably still OK—but it's beginning to spiral into the fiasco zone. Stay tuned!
