What do you think of Kim as a starting pitcher?

Dominate behind Johnson and Schilling
Start out slow and get better with time

johnson and schilling only get better with age, all the young pitchers in the league still and probably never will be able to pitch a ball like these two

You are definately right, two of the most dominant pitcher in the game, but I believe the dbacks have great talent with Kim, Patterson, and Dessens as thier next three waiting to be the club ace. I think they will be fine at pitching expecially with Randy and Curt as their teachers.

Several things have to happen for him to stay in the starting rotation. 1) He has to work on his stamina. and that will start by lowering his pitch count. as a closer it was not uncommn for him to throw 25-30 pitches in an inning. he started the spring with 25 in 1 innning. with that kind of pitch count he wont last past the 4 inning and then its back to the pen.
2) and 3) are with Mantei..He has to stay healthy. Comming back from TJ surgury this could be a problem and He has to be effective. Mantei has the stuff to do it just can he produce?
If BK can stay in the rotation he will be tuff. But I think he will probably end up back in the pen
