...can anyone tell me why?
It is really hard to get excited about the fact that we had to go to the Rockies refuse pile to choose a starter for an important game in the stretch run.
I know he's beaten the Giants in the past, and I know he's pitched decently in AAA, but then again, I know his career ERA is over 5.00.
Why not Belisle, Michalak, Standridge? Why not someone else from Louisville? Why not a bullpen day? Why Kim??
Talk about a lack of confidence in what you've got on your own staff; if nothing else, I see this as a sign that wholesale changes are just around the corner.
I was down at the game last night (beautiful night for baseball). The crowd was anemic. And that's a shame; they missed a beautifully pitched game. But then when I hear Kim is pitching today, I understand why the crowd will be thin again.
I hope Sunny pitches well and proves me wrong, but this move has almost an air of resignation attached to it, IMO.
