Wickman, Borowski, or Batista?

Postby AI8818 » Sun Mar 20, 2005 9:57 am

Which one of those closers will most likely keep their job, and have the best season? Thanks for the help!

Wickman
Borowski
Batista

I like Wickman the best of the 3, but he also has the most injury concern at this point.

Everyone says Batista will be replaced by League before the season is over.

If you can't handle Wick's injury concerns, JoBo might be the guy to go with.

I also like Borowski. He did pretty well a couple of season's ago. I look for him to bounce back. Please help with my post below.

They're all gambles but I'd take Borowski also since he has the most upside.

Wickman and Borowski are essentially a tossup and it comes down to whether you want more stability and lousy ERA and WHIP numbers from Wickman or want to gamble on Borowski. Batista...please. Jays closer was garbage last season and it looks like they have even less of an idea this year.

borowski is potentially the best. although i think he has the most risk of losing his job, that risk is decreasing each day. wickman and batista will be unspectacular but at this point i dont foresee either one of them losing the job.
