Team Meeting alert

According to McTaggart, Berkman called a team meeting this morning to remind them that they are still getting paid to play baseball, even if the baseball they're playing sucks (okay, I made up that last part). McTaggart also said Berkman understands where Roy is coming from (on the "no fire" part).

I imagine the team meeting being similar to the halftime speech by Jon Moxon against Gilroy:

"Let's go out there and play the next 36 games for the next 36 games. And we'll leave all out on the field. We have the rest of our lives to be mediocre, but we have the chance to play like gods for the last 36 games of this season. But we can't be afraid to lose. There's no room for fear in this game. And if we go out there and half-ass it because we're scared, then we're left with nothing but an excuse. We'll always wonder. But if we go out there and give it all we got, that's heroic. Let's be heroes."

And of course there would be no coaches in this meeting, either
