Give This Man A Break
While we all know now that Derrek Lee's arm is not in immanent danger of falling out of his shoulder, what I want to know is this: Why this man is being allowed to suit up for the All Star Game?
Although Baker wants to play it cautiously this week with Lee, he said he supports Lee going to and playing in the All-Star Game.
"It's hard sitting out your first All-Star Game. That's a little tough. We'll see. We'll see how he heals." - Dusty Baker
Now, I'm all for him going and doffing his cap and getting his bonus. But I don't want to see him swing anything more than a cocktail at that game.
Go have a good time, Derrek. But if you weren't willing to go for the cycle in a game that actually counted because you were concerned about your health, why play in a meaningless exhibition?
