Cows > Spring Training

Carlos Lee won't be in the lineup today or tomorrow, as he's been given permission to travel to Houston for "a business matter." It doesn't take Sherlock Holmes, or even Mycroft Holmes, to figure out that with the Rodeo going on, that's where Lee will be.

"He has my blessing. We had discussed it when he first got here. I already told him he is in the lineup for Saturday."

Does it seem like it's a bit off-putting to show up and start talking about vacation days? That's a big no-no in my industry. Which is obviously not baseball.

We also see from Fallas' blog post that Berkman could DH in tomorrow's game, but will definitely be out today.

Thats what happens when you have guaranteed contracts. What are they going to do? Take his 18.5 million for the upcoming season?

+1 - Good point. It serves no purpose to get all huffy about it.
