HoustonChronicle.com: Perhaps Astros’ luck has taken good turn

Mickey Herskowitz thinks, “The night before a starting assignment, no pitcher has any excuse for opening a package with a knife. If possible, he should pass on the task to his wife or, if unmarried, to his mother.” Why? Adam Eaton of the Padres got bumped a start because he cut his hand while opening a package of DVDs. The cut required two stitches.

Should players really be prevented from knife work? I can hear the knife police now, “Sorry, Pedro, drop the knife and put down that peanut butter down before you hurt yourself.”

I’d hate to be the guy struggling to get the butter knife away from Rich Garces after he opens a fresh loaf of bread.
