That rumor's been around for a long time, and Florida has not hid that they would part with Borowski since he is older and they have two arms to take his place. In fact, everyone supposed he would be traded during forecasts the beginning of this season (and that FLA would lose over 100 games...hah!).

But FLA now does not seem to really care to trade him. They like what he can do, and he's cheap for another year. They probably think with their progression over this year, they could contend next year, and he's proven when healthy he's a cheap, dependable closer.

But a team might need a setup man bad and trade for him. FLA's never opposed to stocking their farm system. The trade would probably have to be a WAS-CIN head scratcher, though.

he is only under contract for 2006 so i wouldnt be at all surprised to see him go. in fact, i kind of expect it. i am looking to move him in a league or two right now since its pretty unlikely he will get saves if he moves.

I didn't see it was a one-year incentive contract. Thought they signed him to a two-year deal. Seeing that, Florida would be a fool to not trade him. I doubt they would want to pay competing offers once he becomes a FA.

I don't know, maybe they would actually pay for him next year as the one person on the team old enough to buy beer.
