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