Expect SV's not W's for KIM

Postby wrveres » Mon Mar 17, 2003 1:32 am

Matt Mantei may be able to pitch today after missing three games because of a broken right middle fingernail.
Mantei will pitch if he doesn't experience any discomfort. His wife helped him shorten his nails to prevent a recurring break after an acrylic nail caused discomfort. Source: Arizona Republic.

Next it will be a pulled groin, and I'm sure his wife will help him with that too. Its always something with this guy. Neck, back, arm, groin and FINGERNAIL.

I figure by May 1st he will be on the DL for somethin'

that's what I do and I don't want to hear. I have him on 2 teams and I need saves on both. But on the other hand, I read a good article in SI that said in Korea, the worst pitchers are in the bullpen, so Kim never liked being a close... imagine what he could do if he likes his job!!! :-)
Is a Duckworth more than a Schilling?

I read the Same Article. Something about pride.. But I think it depends upon Mantei staying healthy. When was the last time he did that for a full season? It may be never. I don't know. I read somewhere also that "Arizona System" is full of quality Starters.

That's ok with me. My team has lots of good SP's already...It wouldn't hurt to have Kim back into saving games for me... :-D
