Marco Estrada, never too busy to practice good dental health, flosses in the dugout

Is flossing important to dental health? Your dentist will probably say yes, even though recent studies cast doubt on that claim. When faced with contradictory advice, though, sometimes it's better to be safe than sorry.

Never let it be said that Estrada can't multitask. While taking the time to encourage Aaron Sanchez after his strong six-inning outing, Estrada pulled out some floss and took care of business right there in the dugout. You know, just in case flossing really does matter.
