The Mets has always been known to sign veteran players looking for a turn around. Their coaches are experts, like most in the league, but the Mets make sure they bring in certain players who would benefit from the coaches help. This year, the Mets plan to sign free agent Byung-Hyun Kim. Kim, who has struggled over the past couple years, is being targeted by the Mets because of his work ethic. Not only that, but pitching coach Rick Peterson has had success working with side-arm relievers like Chad Bradford and Pedro Feliciano. I assume the Mets would give him a chance to start, but I think he is better suited for the bullpen. Kim was 10-8 this season with a 6.08 ERA and 107 K.
