Logan Forsythe getting called up to sit next to Blake Tekotte

Orlando Hudson is going back onto the disabled list with a strained left groin and Logan Forsythe will be called back up from Triple-A to join the team on Friday. It would be nice to see Forsythe get the bulk of the action at the position with the injury, but if his last stint is any indication, he will just be sitting on the bench with Blake Tekotte. Tekotte was recently called up and has only seen one plate appearance since the call.

Alberto Gonzalez likely will get most of the starts while Orlando is on the DL. Eric Patterson might see some time at 2B also.

Why not play the kids? We have an awful record and it would be nice to get these guys some big league experience while they are here. Is Forsythe going to be worse than Gonzalez? We will never find out, since Forsythe will be sitting on the bench.
