Boston Red Sox: Byung-Hyun Kim's starting days with the Red Sox are over -- at least for the time being. Kim got hammered by the Indians last night and found himself out of a starting job by the end of the fourth inning. "We're in a very competitive area in what we're trying to do," manager Terry Francona told Bob Hohler of the Boston Globe. "And right now it's just not working [with Kim] starting. I don't think it's fair to him or to us, so we're going to make a change for now." Kim's nightmare outing included a pitch on which he completely missed Jason Varitek's target, crossing up his catcher and allowing two runs to score. His rotation spot will be taken by Bronson Arroyo. Kim has the choice to report to the bullpen, Triple A Pawtucket, or the team's training and rehabilitation center in Fort Myers, Florida, writes Hohler.
