Red Sox: Kim left off ALCS roster

by Fanball Staff - Fanball.com
Wednesday, October 8, 2003

News
The Red Sox have decided to leave co-closer Byung-Hyun Kim off their roster for the ALCS against the Yankees. Kim blew a ninth-inning lead in game one of the ALDS against the A’s and then flipped off booing Red Sox fans before game three at Fenway. He later apologized, but the blown save combined with his gesture and past history against the Yankees (while with the Diamondbacks in the 2001 World Series) led to the change.

Views
Todd Jones was added to the BoSox roster along with Jeff Suppan. Scott Williamson will likely get the first crack at any save situations.

i heard about that a while ago...a bit slow on the uptake, mad! :-D


in all seriousness, i'm not surprised. kim is owned by the yankees, no matter when. he's not very good in pressure situations, and i think it would overbear him. that's just one man's opinion.

Yeah, but I just took over a team in a keeper league so I've been a little busy trying to get it figured out. Also, I didn't see anyone post this here.

This also adds to the possibility of Kim starting next year.

In any case, I still wouldn't go near Kim with a 10 foot pole. P'raps Todd Jones isn't great, but I don't mind the change.
