Torre's odd move: Again

Leiter bugs me too. He's been painful to watch, won't or can't throw strikes and his games take forever to play out. That said, Joe should never have pulled him after 87 pitches for Aaron Small. He had another twenty five pitches left easily in his arm so why not let him go?

Small has been great starting games, but come on Joe, how much can he do for us? We can't keep experimenting with guys and changing their roles, especially with a career minor leaguer who has found a nice niche for himself in NY. It's too late in the season now. Keep Small as your starter and move Lieter out of the rotation.
