Dodgers starter Hong-Chih Kuo(郭泓志, name means great ambition) was brilliant down the stretch for the Dodgers last year as a Starter(as opposed of being a reliever most of early 2006 and 2005). Posting a 3.05ERA as a starter. And I remember one particular outing where he was extremely unlucky(all the hits came in 1 inning, completely dominant the rest of the game. I think it was the Pirates). All in all, he burned bright late last year. He uses 4 pitches as far as I know, a fastball around 93, a slider around 85, a loopier slider around 80 and a below average changeup. His command wasn't all that stellar when I watched him(the Mets game). And he has absolutely no track record to talk about.
He came to the US have signed a 1.4million dollar contract with the Dodgers and at the time was thought to be more talented than Chien-Ming Wang. But he injured himself after his first pro starts and had to have TJ, he later had another TJ and pitched sporadically and unimpressively between 2001-2004. Then he broke out last year as a reliever and I believe moved quickly up the ladder.
Well, I've told you everything I know about him. What do you guys think what he'll do next year? The talent cannot be denied but there's huge risks too.
