Matt Lindstrom explained the source of his back problems last year while with Houston. Hint: It was because of a rented bed. A rented. Bed.
"I had a day and a half from the time we broke spring training to get into a place. I didn't know the Houston area. I was going to a new team and I didn't really know anyone on the club as well. It was pretty much my fault. I needed a bed. It was about me being stubborn and seriously blockheaded. I didn't think my back was going to give out on me in July."
