I'm just shaking my head at this time. If there's truly nothing he can do to stay out of the damn doghouse, then do him a favor and trade him.
Only reason Barker would've played before Ballard is because Barker took the pregame warmup whereas Ballard didn't, so of course Barker would've played over Ballard. Everyone seems to think Barker is now ahead of Ballard, which is not the case in this instance.

I guess you don't remember Khudobin. We've had trouble with bad starters since.
