Rolen out again
Rolen is out again with a sore back. There was a delay in posting the lineup because he was going to test his back in the batting cage.
“I’m feeling better,” Rolen said before going to hit. “I’m trying to figure out if I can play Major League Baseball. I can walk around like a normal human being. But that’s a little different than what I’m being called upon to do.”
Dusty Baker wasn’t in a chatty mood this morning but he clearly had a message he wanted to send after four straight losses.
“You have two choices. You can either get down or keep fighting it,” Baker said. “I don’t want to get down. If you get down, don’t stay down. Sure, it’s a downer after the game. The key to this is to keep it light. You can get down, just don’t stay down.”
