Wilson Betemit sits tonight against Tim Hudson, who holds the second highest ERA in the NL. Combine this benching with Grady Little's ringing non-endorsement, and it could mean the end for Betemit as a starter. Heck, it could be the end for Betemit as a Dodger if we pull a patented Ned Colletti sell low maneuver.
