I haven't heard anything yet, but as a Kent owner, I'm pretty irritated about it. :-[
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....

The more times Jimy benches studs like Kent and Berkman, the more the Astros lose. The more the Astros lose, the better chance Jimy gets fired. If Jimy gets fired, that means Ensberg will probably get more playing time for his new manager, since nobody's stupid enough to start Mike Lamb in a platoon with Ensberg. So all in all, this may be a good thing... :-D

DENVER -- Including Monday's off day, Jeff Kent will have three days of rest after sitting out the last two games of the Houston Astros' weekend series in Colorado.
The second baseman hasn't played since Friday because of nagging discomfort in his right quadriceps muscle, but he is confident he'll be back in the lineup when the Astros begin a series in Pittsburgh on Tuesday.

"It's not a big deal," Kent said. "Today was just a bonus day because we've been playing so well. We've got a day off tomorrow, so two leads into three. It's a convenient opportunity.

"I can play any day and every day. Jimy's (manager Jimy Williams) chosen to give it a couple days to give it a rest."

Kent missed an exhibition game toward the end of Spring Training with the same quad problem but said later he took the day off only for precautionary reasons. Williams and Kent appear to have the same feeling about this latest setback.


"I gave him off yesterday, we have off tomorrow," Williams said. "Will three in a row help him? I think it's worth a shot to try to help his quad. He can play. It's not a problem. But if I'm ever going to do it, to try to give him three in a row to help that leg, now's the time to do it."

He pinch-hit in today's game. Nice going, Jimy. Leave your studs out and lose the game. Way to go, buddy.
