Florida Closer Job

How secure is Borowski's job?? I noticed that Taylor Tankersley has been getting a few chances recently and has been doing well. Are these just times when Borowski is being rested or is this young gun moving in to the role??

Girardi has expressed interest in the past that he'd like to give some of his younger guys a shot at closing games as the year goes on, which is why Tankersley and Kensing have been getting some chances at it. I still think that Borowski has a good hold on the job though.

Agree w above. Note also that, on Friday, Jobo had pitched three days in a row. Kensing started the ninth inning and Tankersley got the last out. Today, Jobo got the save in a 1-2-3 9th w/ 2 K.

Jobo is doing a servicable job as closer -- I don't think he's actually blown a save yet -- and there's no reason for Girardi to change horses in midstream. Long term is a different story, of course, but I think Jobo will get the lion's share of closing chances for 2006.

Jobo walks too many to be elite but he'll get some Ks, a decent ERA, and should finish the year with 20 to 25 saves, all for the price of a cup of coffee in most fantasy leagues.
