What do you guys think of the Red Sox' bullpen? Personally, right now I'm not too pleased with it but it might just be me. I feel as if we don't have a dominating reliever to secure our leads. Also, i felt the Kim/Hillenbrand trade was awful. Hillenbrand, to me, seems like he could produce more for the Sox than Kim can.

The Kim/Shea trade seems even better now than it did when it was first made, with Kim now closing. Hillenbrand is good ballplayer, a great 3B, and I really like him when he was with us. But this season Kim will become invaluable to a pitching staff that needed it. Mueller has been doing great at 3rd for us this season, hitting .327. Granted Shea looked awesome last night with his 3 HR and 7 ribbies, but in the end we should all be very happy with this trade. Down the road, Kim could become Derek Lowe, great closer turned great starter, but for now, we really need that stopper in the ninth desperately. I know Sox fans give this every year, but our offense is superb and the staff is starting to take shape. And Pedro will be Pedro, like he proved yesterday. Not that that really has anything to do with this, I just love watching Pedro pitch...

Kim didn't look too hot against the Yanks the other night, but I guess we'll have to see...

in one aspect i have to agree, i am not too enthused by the hillenbrand/kim swap, but i also have to agree that we need to give it time. lets not forget that shea is now playing in front of his home crowd, an inspiration to any young talent! who knows maybe by the end of the season if he still hasnt signed he will possibly rejoin the offensive juggernaut the sox have become this season...

After seeing a couple more games pitched by BK, i'm not as unenthusiatic as I was before. i think that if he keeps pitching well, he could fill in the hole we've had at closing role.

The RedSox bullpen is shaky. Thats how its been all year and will likely be for the remainder of it. There is a peak of sunlight from the clouds in Kim. He had a solid save for the jays a couple of nights ago and has 3 saves on the season now. Im sure he will probably blow the next couple of save opportunities he gets, but we'll see.
