Byung-Hyun Kim, RH Sidney Ponson, RH (1-5, 5.91) (6-4, 5.36)
Game time is 7:05 on WJZ.
'Tis Byung-Hyun Kim, former Diamondback and Red Sock. Former dominant closer. It's odd to realize that just two years ago, Kim was still a pretty damn good pitcher. He fell off the earth last year and wound up a Colorado Rockie after a disastrous 2004. What a horrible fate.
But here's the thing: Kim is a talented pitcher and has been his old self the last two starts he's made, a couple of six inning affairs, both allowing two earned runs and striking out fifteen batters over the twelve innings. So I don't expect to just shell him tonight. I wish I could see the game, because I was looking forward to it. I'm a BK fan. But go ahead and beat him, Fat Pitcher.
Too bad Ponson didn't start Friday. He'll look extra rotund in the whites.
