    Byung-Hyun Kim

    Rotoworld says he has the possibility of being released when activated from DL. Not sure what he is making but I am intrigued by the possibility of putting him back in a relief role that he succeeded in back in 01-03. He was dominant during those seasons he was a closer.

    Hmm... maybe, but we really don't have much room for risky guys like Kim (very unlike the past)

    noooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo

    i watched him pitch here in Boston. both starting and relief. He is a head case and his effective days are behind him.

    Byung-Hyun Kim is one of my all-time favorite pitchers
    There is no such thing as a pitching prospect.

    Kim used to throw mid-90's back when he was good, that was what was so unique about him. Still, he hasn't been that guy for a while now.

    Kim does not want to be a reliever. He sulks, complains and whines when he is made one (much like Kyle Lohse) and he's not good enough to be a starter.

    Pass.

    His numbers agree with your statement that he is not a starter.

    He was a very effective closer. Don't know what his velocity is at but figured he may be worth a shot if it is 90+.
