I'd like to see him relieve again. Watching him start makes my stomach feel bad.

Colorado is not a good place for a guy like him IMO. He's usually a once around guy for most starts.

He was actually not too bad at Coors this season, the road was the biggest problem. We can't ask too much from him these days anyway. And he's only 27. :-°

Still relief is a better role for him, but its not like teams haven't told him that. The guy just sees himself solely as a starter for some odd reason. His arm is so durable though. Having him come out of the bullpen would be much bigger asset for teams.

The weird thing is that if Kim was back being a RP, either setup or closer, and producing nobody would have a problem with that figure.

dudes, seriously, as a BK owner the past 2 years and until 2010. The dude is not going to go back to RP in Colorado because he sucked at that role his first year there. Could he do better in a second try? Maybe? But they have Fuentes to close and Mesa to setup. They don't need another RP. And RP's contribution to the team is limited. BK has been adequate this year(a defense independent ERA of 4.24 is nothing to sneeze at) if you take out defense and luck. And he's showed signs of brilliance. Why would the Rockies consider putting him back in relief? A starter who gets a 4.70 ERA is more valuable to the Rockies than a RP who gets a 3.70ERA. And BK's ratio improved from last year. It's not hard to picture BK having the below line next year.

9-11 170ip 4.70ERA 1.41WHIP

2.5 millions isn't that expensive now adays for a SP anyway.
