I've heard the job might go to Bowyer. Anyone know for sure?

No way, you have to believe that Todd Jones still has the job, after a dominant season and a year under his belt. JoBo has been to inconsistent with injuries and stability in pitching since his return a year ago to the cubs. I don't see it happening
Kerry Wood and Prior aren't actually hurt but don't like Chicago weather in march/april and late july/august. Notice they were on the dl during those times

Felix Pie doesn't exist. He's a marketing scam by the Cubs to give the fans hope

I hate to burst your bubble musicdude but Todd Jones is now a Detroit Tiger. Borowski MAY get the opportunity to close. He could be worth a flyer. Who knows if he will be able to hold the job or how many games Florida will win for that matter.

I have Florida projected for 46 wins using Zips Projections and Diamond Mind Baseball. Did 10 seasons worth of simulations and 46 wins was the AVERAGE. I don't think it matters a whole heck of a lot who they have as a closer unless almost every win is a save opportunity. ;)

...like Bryan Harvey did when he saved over 70% of the Marlins games in their inaugural season.

It's pretty difficult to win only 46 games. I'd bump that up to at least 47 ;-)

That's what I thought...I couldn't believe (A) how bad they did in the projections and (B) how CONSISTANTLY bad they did in the projections. They just got destroyed.

i like jborowski to win the job (he didnt pitch badly for TB last yr) but IF tbowyer finds his control he could have the job by memorial day..look for a combined 30+ saves from the florida bullpen
