I have to pick him up because I lost Aquino as a closer and missed out on Lyon, no other options :-t :-t

Taking a flamable pitcher like Kim and then pitching him at Coors is like trying to put out a fire with gasoline! Sure, it's wet, but all it does is fuel the fire! :-°

He currently has a 162.00 ERA, 21.00 WHIP with the Rockies. Yes, the decimals are in the right place. And no, it wasnt even at Coors.

You're far better off keeping Aquino. Lyon is far from a lock to keep the job, and Aquino figures to vulture a few wins in the setup role even if he doesn't get back in the closer mix.

The main thing is you DO NOT want any part of Kim. He's finished. An 84 MPH heater at Coors is a disaster. Even if he somehow becomes a part of the closer rotation there (highly unlikely) he's going to get lit up.

To be honest, if Aquino was that much of a key to your bullpen, the likelihood is that you were neever in good shape at this spot. Either make a trade for a quality closer, or punt the saves for now.
