On Joe Borowski and the use of a “relief ace”…
July 10th, 2008 by czar

Borowski has been released by Cleveland. He is not very good but he couldn’t cost anything to sign to a minor league deal and see how he does in AAA. He is a guy if effective you could use to close some games and allow Tito to use Papelbon more in 7th or 8th inning “relief ace” situations.

This will not happen. As interesting as the “use the best reliever in the most high leverage situation, regardless of inning” theory is, the Sox will not allow Papelbon to pitch the 7th (likely because Javier Lopez walked the bases loaded), and then bring out Joe Borowski to try to nail down the 9th inning.

At best, Borowski would be a lukewarm arm for the 6th and 7th innings.
