McTaggart's Notebook: Lindstrom, Bourn, Michaels, and Wallace

Brian McTaggart's Notebook has some information of note:

*Lindstrom had a good outing in a bullpen session today.

I'm anticipating an outing with the Double-A team within the next couple of days, so it should be fine. It's a day-to-day thing. Whenever I wake up, I try to see how I feel, but today was a good day."

*Bourn's hamstring is acting up, and he left today's game in the 3rd inning.

"It's all right. It got tight on me earlier in the game, and that's why some balls I couldn't run out. Before it got too bad, I came out. I knew better than to try to keep going in there and to try to run again. You could feel the tightness and it was hot out there. Instead of being dumb, I tried to be smart."

*Jason Michaels, who likely knows that he's only on a one-year deal (with a $900,000 deal for next year, or a $100,000 buyout for 2011), likes Houston:

I like this group here and I love the staff. I think it's worked, personally. I think Houston's a great place to play. I'd definitely love to come back."

*And Wallace had the day off while he's battling The Zeroes.

"He seems to be handling it extremely well and really looking at it from a good angle. This kid's got a good head on his shoulders and is really quiet, and observes a lot and listens and pays attention to what's going. I think he's going to be OK. Everybody goes through a tough time, and it's not the first time a young kid is going through issues."
