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.


Mesa actually had his option declined by the Rockies and is now a FA.

I know that. But Mesa said he want to be back and the Rockies actually want him back at a cheaper price.

Yeah, BK does see himself as a starter. It has something to do with his Asian (I believe Korean) heritage. In Asia your best 5 pitchers start...

BK is a decent starter too. He's not amazing, but he's sufficient. And sufficient SP are hard to come by these days.

Okay... not sure why this is directed to me. My opinion is that he is better as a RP and that he shouldn't start for that reason. I never asked why he thinks that. I couldn't care less.

If BK could just put it all together, he could be really good. As mentioned before, he actually did well at Coors but was bad on the road. I don't think he's a bad 5th starter at all.

Also, I've heard rumors he could be traded, and that's why his option was picked up.

On Mesa, his option was declined but as PWF said, the Rockies want him back for at a smaller price. Not to be the 8th inning guy however, they're looking to pick someone up for that role or use Corpas/Ramirez.

Kim was ok this year IMO

He's streaky he'll put up 4 games in a row of 1-2 run ball 7 IP then he'll do 7ers for a few days.

I think he'll get better..His stuff can be really really really nasty which is more then you can say about alot of people with his ERA
I'm too lazy to make a sig at the moment
