Zito is God wrote:The thing about Hudson is I have the sickest rotation you could ever think of. I have 5 of the top 10 pitchers (we have a 5 man rotation). I technically don't need Hudson too much, I even have an ace (Buerhle) on my bench. (Yes, it is that good).
But even though I don't need Hudson, a player of his caliber is undroppable to me. I however need to free up 4 spots for minors leaguers that need to be called up next year (Kinsler, Billingsley, Fielder, and Hansen), I am already dropping DeRosa and Hardy, I need 2 more.
Hudson is droppable. If you're stacked at SP, and you need help elsewhere, than drop him or trade him. If deadline is passed, "See ya, Hudson."
He's a matchups guy at best for the rest of the year. Don't try to keep the dream alive. Maybe he'll round into form next year and maybe not.
