Why isn't Chuck James Up?
"Meanwhile, Wilson sits, and Chuck James remains in Richmond (because he was optioned to the minors on June 7, James can't be recalled until the 17th, unless another pitcher is disabled). And the season is, quite possibly, days from being over."
I have never heard of this rule but at least it offers another explanation to the stupidity. Also, Chris Rietsma was disabled recently so the Braves apparently had a chance to bring Chuck James up and passed on it. All I know is that Chuck James should be in the starting rotation right now.
