Daric Barton to the DL

Daric Barton's headed to the DL. Apparently he dove into a shallow pool over the break and hit his read bad enough that he got six staples and some neck pain. Frankly, this probably helps the offense with Wes Bankston coming up to replace him, but still, you don't want to see Barton losing development time, even just two weeks. Plus, Bob Geren's kinda pissed: "I'm upset about it a little bit. It seemed to be a careless mistake that hurt the team." See, I told you he reminded me of Coach Taylor. He probably chewed him out in his office.
