The Giants arrived at camp yesterday and questions are already coming up about their weak pitching staff. According to Henry Schulman of SFGate.com, the Giants hope to sign Byung-Hyun Kim to a spot starter role. Kim pitched fairly well last season even after being moved around several times. Kim went 10-8 with a 6.08 ERA in twenty-eight games last season, but I think he would be more effective from the bullpen. His high ERA and high walk totals I think would limit coming from a position where he would face two to three batters at most. We'll see, but it is obvious that the Giants Front Office is looking to make a move. Why not sign Kyle Lohse to a 'Livan Hernandez type deal'?
