LaTroy is by far the best reliever on the Cubs. Any fellow Cub fan will agree with that.

All you guys call for the head of Borowski and demand Hawkins gets the closers role.
He gets a chance and blows it (as he did regularly for the Twins) and all of a sudden Farnsworth becomes an option.
Farnsworth at the moment would be a terrible option as a closer.
Hawkins is a great set up guy as he has shown the past 2 seasons.
Borowski, despite currently having a high ERA and WHIP has been as good as automatic since the beginning of last year as a closer. He will remain the Cubs closer and if he gets regular work and save opps. will continue to be be very good doing it.
There is a certain irony in what happened today. The Cubs had given Borowski just 8 save chances despite winning 25 games this season and he had converted all of them.
Today they decide to give out 2 chances and both are blown.
Borowski will remain the closer.
