Being a guy pushing for Niitty, I don't think Hitch would have made a good move by not bringing back Esche. He is giving him an other chance cause he lost it last time against TB. The problem, is that this team is on a roal (3-0-1) and it might be Esche last start before we see Niitty getting a chance to start two consecutive games. Still, with the schedule, I guess they will split the Bos and NYI games on friday and saturday... after that weekend however, depending on how Esche and Niitty played, things might turn around.
