Rockies to have Six Man Rotation?

At least for a little while according to the Denver Post's Mike Klis (scroll down).

"There's a feeling we need to try to do what's in the best interest of the ballclub, and he's part of the ballclub," O'Dowd said. "He could even be part of our future."

This is a somewhat welcome occurrence to me as I have long felt a six person rotation would work very well with the Rockies.

No word on what exactly the "fervent discussions" entailed, but judging from Clint Hurdle's statements made earlier in the week, I wonder if he was completely on board with this. Keeping Kim long term could solve some issues with the make-up of the 2006 staff, especially if he continues to regain his past form and confidence.

Update [2005-7-7 6:59:35 by Rox Girl]:

The Rocky Mountain News says that Joe Kennedy's start today will go a long way in determining if the Rox do decide to go with the six man after the all-star break.
