How else to explain this move? One day after I complained that I was tired of Luke Hudson, and that real organizations that want to win do not give sixteen starts to a pitcher with an ERA of 7.20, Hudson has been removed from the rotation. Randy Keisler will start in his place on Wednesday.

As Marc Lancaster said, nice of them to spring this move on us at the last minute. It hardly matters now.

This is called shutting the barn door after the horse has escaped.
