Sending out Vince Velasquez asks more questions about this front office’s leadership

Designating Vince Velasquez is not something to get worked up about. There are arguments that it is at least two years overdue, so the fact that it has happened now is not exactly strange, but it does raise an eyebrow:

What the heck did they ever see in him in the first place?

Why, just the other day, he struck out nine in a rehab start in Lehigh Valley, yet the team decided that it would be better to promote Adonis Medina and Cristopher Sanchez to the team rather and help provide bulk innings as they continue with the plan to use bullpen games every fifth game.
