That's what the Twins thought in 2001. Then Hawkins got more BB's than K's (39 BB's, 36 K's), and had an ERA of 5.96 in 62 games. Borowski is a better closer. He was almost flawless last year.

51 saves...and that is something to complain about... :-?
I used Beck as an example because he always put the tying run on third before getting the save, the original poster was complaining how Borowski gave him a heart attack before he got the save. And I was pointing out that Beck did it much more frequent and everyone got much closer to death before the save. Although he was effective. But that wasn't the point.

Gotcha Andy, I see your point now... :-)

Hey I know I'm OLD and all, but The Cubs have had that long before Beck. Let us not forget the likes of LEE SMITH, Mitch Williams, Mel Rojas, Need I go on?
