If you don't have access to a radio, you may not have heard that Joe Borowski broke his hand yesterday when he was hit by a batted ball. He will be out close to two months.
There will be much hand wringing about this move. Color me skeptical as to its effect on the team. Joe had a miracle season in 2003. A guy who had done nothing as a pro stepped up and became a key cog in a near World Series team. In 2004, he was hurt. He'd lost about 5 to 10 MPH off his fastball. Now, he is supposedly back.
I'm not sure I have a lot of faith in the Borowski arm.
Once again, the klaxon alarm goes off for Jim Hendry. He failed to add a closer down the stretch in 2003 and 2004. Both times it cost him. Now, he needs to do it before the season starts.
You have a wealth of pitching prospects to deal, Jim. Many of whom you will never use and many of whom who will not pan out.
Make some moves.
