Sweaty Joe Calls it a Career

MLB News and Rumors

Former Chicago Cubs closer / really sweaty guy Joe Borowski is hanging up the spikes.


Cubs fans will remember Borowski for a handful of things: a ridiculous back-up slider, the obvious desire to make games as close as possible before finishing them, and the huge chunk of change the Cubs dropped on him after a shockingly successful stint closing games.

Oh, and for coming out of nowhere in 2001, after pitching in the Mexican League, and finally “making it” at the age of 30.
