Keeps getting dropped in my leagues...
And in any league I have roster space, I'm picking him up. ;-D

Think he could be in for a good year when he's back?

If this guy's ERA and WHIP are indicators of what's to come, he's going to be the best sleeper of the season.

I agree. I would even drop players for Kim.

Kim could be awesome this year. I drafted him in the 22nd round in my draft and stuck him on my DL. He could be a GREAT risk: Good ERA, good WHIP, high Ks, and should get Ws with a good defense behind him. What more could you want from a sleeper?

I think owners will get good value out of him.
That crazy sidearm delivery is impressive when he's on.
I can see how it might be tough on the shoulder though :-?
But yeah, I think he makes an excellent 5th SP, on Boston and my team. I like Wakefield too, he seems like a good pitcher to stream.

I love him too but isn't there the slightest possiblity that Francona gets the silly idea in his head that he'd prefer Kim in long relief?

He needs to put the needs of the fantasy owner ahead of his own.

Kim has value on several fronts.

If he starts and pitches well, he'll get some Wins with that lineup. Plus his K's and WHIP are great.

In long relief (the worst option) he's akin to a Mota, type guy. Still gives innings K's and WHIP but not tremendous value.

Last, let's not overlook the fact that Foulke had a very bad Spring. Francona was not impressed. Although there is a 90% chance Foulke will stick in the role, Kim is always there to be used as a closer as well.

I have him and I'm keeping him.

Yup. Kim will come around... see the sig.

And, Kim will start unless he tanks--and I don't think he will. They're paying him $5 million--and that ain't long relief money.
I'm back. Sorta.

Do not boo Johnny.
