Berkman to start at 1B today

Alright, alright. We're back, and ready to get to it, until I have to leave again. But let's get in what we can, and we'll start wtih Berkman, who DH'ed (Yes, I know I just abbreviated that to Designated Hitted) yesterday, but will play 1B in today's game vs the Braves:

“It doesn't necessarily feel a lot better, but when the doctor told me I couldn't hurt it any worse, why not go back out there? I need to get ready for the season.”

I have something of a problem with this. First, I understand he needs to get work in and prepare for the season, but without the benefit of a day of medical training, I guess I don't believe that it can't be hurt worse. And that doesn't sound like a very good thing.
