Red Sox 5th Starter?

Postby brdmaverick » Mon Mar 29, 2004 10:52 am

I know that BH Kim is starting the season on the DL.

But even in the long run, who would you be willing to roll the dice with, BH Kim or Bronson Arroyo.

Kim was just dropped in my league, making both of them available. I want to pick one up, but which one?

Arroyo is going to be the 5th starter for the time being, and he had a good outing last week. I've seen them both pitch a lot (i'm from Boston), and I like Arroyo better. Kim has a lot of issues with the stress of pitching in Boston (recall when he flipped the bird to the fenway faithful?), while Arroyo seems more secure out there.

Neither of them is incredible (both are FA's in my league), and they play in the power-packed AL East, but you know they'll get a lot of run support.

If you're set on taking either one, go with Arroyo, and if Kim is still a FA when the season starts, you can always grab him and stash him away on the DL while you see how Arroyo pans out.

As Coach McGuirk said, neither of them are that great or reliable. For the time being, I would pick up Arroyo because he is more consistent as we all know than Kim and he will start the season in the rotation. But be sure to keep an eye on Kim. If you are in a yahoo league, you have the option of placing a player on a "watch list."
