Didn't I read just the other day that Kim has not regained his velocity? I'll see if I cant find it.

Mantei is a very good pitcher. He would be an excellent pitcher if he could just stay healthy.

I agree with the Hat here. ;-D

Looks to me like Kim is "Done" :-o

Link 03/27 wrote:It is no secret that the team would love to trade Kim but is being held back by the money owed to him ($6 million) on his albatross contract. The submarine-style reliever held on to save yesterday's win despite allowing a run on two hits, a walk and a hit batsman in the ninth inning. Kim, who has a 5.40 ERA in five spring games, left the bases full by getting Ben Grieve to ground out. His fastball velocity, which once was in the low 90s, reached a spring-high 87 mph. Kim estimated he currently is at 70 percent of his potential speed. "A lot of people talk about speed and velocity, but the key is to get the guy out," he said through translator Chang Lee.


03/20 link wrote:"He was at 84 miles an hour," said one major league scout. "I thought my radar gun was stuck. He might have touched 85. He's just a shadow of the pitcher he was in Arizona. This is a guy who threw in the 90s when he was in Arizona, and his slider had incredible movement. Now, his slider is flat.

"He's a very, very marginal pitcher right now. I wouldn't give the Red Sox $500,000 for him, and they want a player back because they're willing to eat the money."

No player ever regains velocity, right? He should just retire. :-b

A year and a half, really. He was good for the Sox in 03; it was the playoffs that he stunk. Then he flipped off the Boston crowd, they got on his case, and he hasn't been the same. Then last year, somehow his mechanics got screwed up and he has not gotten them back.

I don't think it's impossible that he will regain his form. I'm sure it won't be in Boston, though.
