Slugger Stanton Is a Quick Healer
It could have been worse. Far worse.
As in Ray Chapman worse.
Or Tony Conigliaro worse.
But it was bad enough when the Miami Marlins' top bopper, Giancarlo Stanton, took a Mike Fiers running fastball to the face this past Thu 11 Sep. The initial damage report was substantial, but thankfully, not tragic.
Maybe this will hasten another recovery, too. Some wounds aren't visible, but they're present nonetheless.
