Ok I've decided he isn't the worst closer in baseball, he is the worst pitcher in baseball.

Watching him right now as we speak, it's just pathetic really.

So, by that logic, you would rather have Borowski as your closer, K-rod? Or would you rather K-rod because he only has 1 less blown save?

I'd rather have the best pitcher available. Theoretically, a pitcher could have an ERA of 27.00 and still lead the majors in saves. That should point to how worthless that statistic is.

Incredibly he could end up with 50 saves and an ERA close to 6.00 8-o

r-man does have a point saves are saves from a fantasy perspective but as a baseball fan borowski or k-rod in playoffs obviously k-rod. if indians are serious about going deep into playoffs borowski has to go as closer though. hes just not suitable he has a whip of almost 1.5 for a closer... and those hits and walks always come back to bite you in the playoffs.
