Buchholz was on fire.  Valentine had to find a way to distract him.

Telling the press that he asked Buch to pitch Sunday serves as an unnecceasry distraction.

Telling the press that he agreed with Buch's decision to disagree with him probably confused the entire known world.

Four starts with a 1.45 ERA, a 28/6 K/W, and a Whip < 1.00, and this moron has to start playing with his head.
