Does anyone know how Joe Borchard is doing? Assuming a new collective bargaining agreement is reached, what are the chances that he will make the club in 2003?

The last I heard was a couple of weeks ago. He was slumping (in the .260s) and was striking out way too much.

That strikeout number is really disgusting. Although I have heard it's very easy to correct.

Seems like everytime I look at a Box Score for a Knights Game he has struck out at least once, I can't remember the last time he didn't strike out at least once in a game. I really hope he can fix that.

The only defense for his K's are, It's better then hitting into dp's. He don't look like he's slumping to me. :?:

At one point, he slumped from the low .300's to the upper .250's. He has been hitting a little more recently. He is not making enough contact, that's obvious. He's still a year away at this point unless he makes a lot of progress in the offseason. His pitch recognition needs a lot of work. He's not seeing many fastballs anymore.

He was doing worse, but seems to be hitting the ball better recently. The K's do need to come down though...

Striking out a lot isn't a big deal, assuming they aren;t evidence of a hole that the opposing pitchers can take advantage of. Sosa strikes out a lot and is still an excellent player, McGwire struck out a lot, Thome strikes out a lot, the list goes on. One of the things that goes hand in hand with power hitting is strikeouts. When you swing as hard as you can, its very difficult to correct the path of the bat much. Hopefully Borchard will be up in the majors next season.
