A Baseball Conundrum

Jon Lester, John Lackey and Josh Beckett have been pilloried by the entire known baseball universe for the crime of goofing off in the clubhouse during games when they weren't scheduled to pitch.

And yet, it is common baseball practice for teams to send the starting pitcher of the first game of a road trip the last day of the previous home stand, so the pitcher can better prepare himself psychologically and be free of the distractions of well, watching a game in which he's not going to pitch.

Or do teams do that so the pitcher's teammates don't SEE him drinking beer, eating chicken and playing video games?
