Can We Count Out Kida?
I had mixed emotions watching Masao Kida pitching last night. I never like to see the Mariners get pummeled. But since Kida was picked up, I've had a nagging fear that the Mariners are considering him as a possible addition to next year's bullpen. Veteran experience, and all of that.
Seeing Kida get lit up gave me more hope that Kida will be nothing but end of season roster filler. I hate to say it, but if a few more horrific outings are needed to ensure that outcome, so be it.
