I really doubt they care about your team
Actually they are just giving him a day off because he was hit in the wrist last night by a pitch.
His wrist? Not to argue but, I saw it last night and it definately looked like it hit his thumb. After he got hit, he took his glove off and the trainer taped up his thumb.
Mugrila- Did you see it? From what I saw, he didn't throw his hands at it. He took his step forward and did turn away from the pitch. He didn't turn fast enough, so it hit his hand. He still had his bat back when it hit him, he just wasn't fast enough. IMO the pitch was also too high for it to have hit him in the back anyway (this may not be true- just what I recall from the game).
