22 in a row now and counting for Joe Borowski

I hope joe can hold out until I can pick up hawkins again. I just dropped Latroy for John Thomson...I needed some more starts this week. Hawkins in useless to me as a middle reliever but I like having him on my bench for insurance. I also noticed that Dusty will not pitch Borrowski on 3 consecutive days. That cuts into his save opps too much if you ask me. If pitchers like graves and benitez can pitch just about every day why cant Joe.

can't argue with success... 22/22 is good.

Two of the steadiest closers over the past year have been Borwoski and Kolb, both of them get sort of snickered at when both have been pretty much perfect over the 100 games or so of baseball. Yeah borowski's stats stink this year but it hasn't been hurting the team, not like say Jeter's stats or Huff's stats who people keep saying not to give up on.

I'm right with you. I don't understand why everyone wants to replace a closer who this year has gotten bombed in non-save games with a pitcher who sucked his last shot at closing. As a Cards fan, I say take the guy with 22 straight saves and put him in middle relief where he doesn't do well. And then take the middle reliever who was horrible as a closer and make him your closer.

Yeah, 22 in a row with a horrible ERA. A closer with 15 instead of 22, but has a much lower ERA wil ldo better (same reason I traded Herges for Urbina). The closer with the low ERA will be better in the long run.

If you look at the last 30 days, Rhodes, Izzy, Worrell all have been worse than JoBo when you look at ERA/WHIP/BS. So before you drop JoBo I'd go ahead and drop those 3 as well.

The high ERA he has will come down as he gets more save opportunities. You draft closers to get you saves and this guy is one of the very best at converting his chances. A low ERA and Whip for a closer is gravy.

and 22 is where it all ends.

It had to happen. Even someone as good at closing as Jo Bo is in trouble after a leadoff triple :-D

For those that are still asking the question. He will still be the closer tomorrow :-o
