Screw the power, I just want him to make contact. Not only does he look awful when he swings, his judgement has looked horrible tonight.

No, Vandenhurk has made everyone not named fielder look silly.

Vargas is just hitting his spots. He isn't fooling anyone but Amezega and Borchard, really.

The amount of Borch hate on this board never ceases to amaze. If he has back to back solid games, all it takes to reinvigorate the Borch hate is one subpar performance.


I always love how fans will bash a player based on one games performance. Try and take a look at the big picture once in a while.

Because if Cody Ross were starting he'd have 2 home runs by now...

He has a huge hole in his swing.

In fact, now that I think about it, he is extremely similar from the left side to Hee-Seop Choi, except he doesn't hit the ball half as hard and his swing is half as sweet. But throw either a good curve, it's like matching Zito against a J/V reserve at a 1A high-school...

And that last swing proves my point x10.

That pitch was at his shoe-tops. Ugly.

Cody is quite possibly a better hitter but who are we kidding?


We have no viable options for RF right now! Borch has made some solid defensive plays tonight (and has no doubt struggled at the plate tonite) but Im getting the vibe from everyone that we have other options. Cody Ross got like 3 hits in Spring Training (and dont get me wrong, I like Cody).


Does that make him a lock for RF?

It landed at his cleats and he swung at the letters... Ridiculous.

I think the first pitch Cody saw this season proves ST means zippo...

And if that doesn't, our entire offense in general does.

The amount of unecessary Borch hate on this board, is directly related to the amount of unnecessary Borch love on this board.

People stick up for this guy too much. I just don't think he's just good enough. I'd rather see guys like John Gall up here in his spot. I guess I resent the support of Joe Borchard more than I resent Joe Borchard (unless he has a performance like tonight... then I hate him more).

Oh, and I don't think you ever want to look at the big picture when it comes to Joe Borchard if you are speaking on his behalf. (.209/.283/.365)
