Ah, Stink

Joe Borowski, the Cubs’ closer in 2003 (and my favorite player on that team), took a line drive off his right wrist and suffered a hairline fracture. He’s probably out until mid-May, which means we get LaTroy Hawkins as a closer again, at least for the first month and a half of the season.

With Prior and Wood both ouchy, this is shaping up to be a repeat of 2004 for the Cubs’ pitching staff.

At least Cubs’ GM Jim Hendry got rid of the bitching staff (Alou, Sosa, Mercker) over the winter.
