Why don't we just play him on the days he doesn't get hurt, and skip the days he would get hurt?
My real point is that his injuries don't appear to be caused by fatigue or being worn down via excess playing time. Rather, they are flukish in nature, and thus bench time will have only modest and totally random impact on reducing his injury risk.
my point is that NJ isn't being benched as a punishment. Neither is Flores.
it's just a day off, and nothing to get worked up about. Day game after a night game, I expect NJ and the previous night's catcher to get the day off.
Milledge, is getting benched for non-performance. (hopefully).
