Cubs vs. Marlins
  • Mon: John Koronka/Dontrelle Willis
  • Tues: Sergio Mitre/Josh Beckett
  • Wed: Greg Maddux/A.J. Burnett

Those matchups don't look too promising for the Cubs.

On this date, June 14, 2005 , I hereby declare "Sweaty-Joe" Borowski finished. Stick a fork in him. He's done. He had one good year, and we appreciate that, but thats over now. In 2003, his one good year, he barely got by with a combination of luck, cajones, and decent stuff. Now he has suffered tw0 more injurys, gotten two years older, and has even less stuff. His fastball isn't fast, his sinker doesn't sink, and is hardly an intimidating presence on the mound. All he has left is his trade mark "grit."While he may still be fearless, Cub fans should be very afraid whenever he takes the mound. I hope that Jo Bo doesn't have to blow 5 more games for the Cubs to accept this.

In all fairness, it should be pointed out that he Borowski had a very solid 2002. Statistically, in fact, it was better than '03. Look it up. He was the only bright light in a bullpen of darkness. I'm not sure how Cub fans can forget this, but, to a man, they all seem to.

Great stuff, BTW. Keep up the good work.

Absolutely Correct Mike,
Joe was very good in '02.
2002 was just so forgettable I guess.
Thanks for visiting Mike.
