Check (http://www.baseball-reference.com/blog/archives/1798) it:


Quick…which pitcher has the best cumulative ERA+ since 2004?


Bet you don’t get it right.



Here’s the list, minimum 300 IP (to weed out some guys like Papelbon who haven’t been in the league since 2004):

I had no idea Cordero had that kind of ERA+ over the past five years. Interesting.

Cordero, although overpaid, is very good. The Reds have been noticeably better ever since they acquired him, and you can't say that about a lot of relievers. He deserves to be an All-Star this year, and I really hope he doesn't get overlooked in the same way Reds fans tend to overlook him.

Sometimes I see these lists and think "how the hell is that guy already 33?!" (in this case B.J. Ryan) and wonder how my sense of time got all messed up.

I threw up my hands and gave up after I read that my favorite player growing up, George Foster, turned 60.
