Reitsma activated; Barry sent down

Kevin Barry was sent back down to Richmond yesterday to make room for Chris Reitsma to come off of the 15-day DL.  Kevin Barry's MLB career now consists of one outing at Yankee Stadium in which he threw 3 shutout innings in relief, striking out one and walking one.  With that kind of success at Yankee Stadium, I would have loved to see what he could do the rest of the year in the bullpen.  I just pray that he will be the guy called up next time somebody goes down.

After seeing Chuck James win his second start of the season, I have to wonder why the heck was this guy not in our starting rotation to begin the season?  I am seeing a disturbing trend of mismanagement when it comes to pitchers recently.  Why was Sosa starting?  Why did they think Chris Reitsma could be a closer?  Why wasn't Chuck James starting?  Why was John Thomson in the bullpen?  Why isn't Kevin Barry getting a shot?  Why did Mike Remlinger even make the roster, and then stick around for as long as he did?  I don't know the answers to any of these questions but most of these have been solved except for the Kevin Barry situation.  The guy deserves a shot and I just hope he gets one.
