2008-05-09 14:00:00 (link to chat)Christina, I'm facinated by Hong-Chih Kuo. You? To my eyes, he seems to be the perfect 2 to 4-inning reliever. His lines are so dominant except when he's pushed as a starter. Am I crazy or would he be perfect to pair with a rookie, like Clayton Kershaw, to innings-limit the young arm?
(Cary from Washington, DC)
That's part of the fun of the game, some of the unlikely heroes you find yourself following. I think it's a role in which Kuo could succeed very nicely, but the problem with creating that kind of usage pattern is getting a guy who likes it. Nobody wants to grow up to be Bob Shirley, and can you blame them? (Christina Kahrl)
2008-05-09 14:00:00 (link to chat)... not even Bob Shirley.
(tcfatone from new york)
Now *that* would make for a great biopic. "I knew my destiny, and I achieved it."--Keith Atherton. (Christina Kahrl)
