Tony Battie and Eduardo Najera are 33 years old and hurting. Asked about his back, Najera says he's a "big fan of Aleve". Battie says his knee, the one with the big brace, is doing better. Still, as Lawrence Frank says, these guys have a "track record". Indeed, they've been around the track a few times. How many minutes will they see? Hard to tell, but even in this youth-oriented team, experience does count.
