Is it so unreasonable to think that Reitsma simply keeps the job?

Not unreasonable at all...nobody else has proven they are any better even in a setup role.

I think Reitsma is safe...but I dropped him the other day for Gagne so he and his terrible ERA and WHIP sit on our WW.

Jorge Sosa allowed five runs and nine hits in 5 2/3 innings Saturday in his first start in 11 days.
Sosa pitched just 1 2/3 innings during his break, so that he was inconsistent once again today hardly came as a surprise. He's expected to be sent to the bullpen once Horacio Ramirez comes off the disabled list.

Now, this may change with the Davies injury, although it looked like minor discomfort.
Don't get me wrong, it's been suggested many times before. I'm just not sure who was "expecting" it to happen. Logically it would have made sense since he's been the worst starter for Atlanta. But that's only because Horacio hasn't been given a chance to stink up the joint (he got hurt in his first start and has been out until now). Its likely that Sosa is better stuited for the pen than Horacio, and if that's the deciding factor, fine. But Ramirez is definitely not the superior starter.

Hmmm, I'm not sure I agree with Sosa over Homeracio. They're both pretty useless as starters to tell the truth, yet with Homeracio at least you know what you're getting. ERA in the high 4's, the odd blow out, plenty of innings.

Sosa on the other hand, well, he could continue to stink like this all year long.

Lucky for us eh......
