Hes doing something thats hard at a bad level.

He's been highly successful since becoming a RED.

While he's going through a tougher month, he's still one of the best closers in the game today, and there's very few players any General Manager would want over the next 12 months than Cordero.

Where are these GM's then? Maybe we can trade him.

Wow, I'm glad we won this, badly needed. Walt, get on the damn phone and get us some pen help though, sheesh, its not going to hold up much longer. We could get swept by the Giants the way it's pitching.

Reds

Wooo. tough series win. but a win none-the-less.

32-24 and 8 over.

He's been highly successful until this season. We have reason to believe he'll still be highly successful and he's going through a rough patch. Also, would you have preferred we didn't spend all that money and were stuck with Marcus McBeth and friends closing games?

This being said, I'd trade him now.

Thats all fine and good but I dont care to hear people claiming stuff like "hes gonna blow saves when he has this many attempts". Hes been bad, hes been hittable, he is hardly trustworthy with a lead.

The last time the Reds lost back to back series? They haven't yet this season

Actually, 33-24. Even better.

As you've stated the problem so many times, he was overused by Dusty in April and May. It's been taking it's toll.

While he's been in a situation lately where he's not dependable, he's not "in the declining stage of his career", he's "struggling". That's a lot different. It means that he'll "likely" return to the more dependable closer that he's been the last few years. He'll still always pitch "from trouble", but he won't blow as high a percentage of Saves.

We've gone through Ondrusek, Fisher, and Lincoln. We've watched Masset and Cordero struggle. Rhodes isn't a Closer. That's a different rol

We don't need to trade for a Closer. We have a very good one in Cordero. He'll get better.

Bray pitched last night for Lynchburg.

Then there's the possibility of LeCure staying and being a Reliever when Bailey comes back.

Burton went two innings last night for Louisville.

Volquez is rehabbing well.

Del Rosario is a very good pitcher and will be a very good Major League Reliever. While most Rookies don't fare well, I'm hoping that Del Rosario pitches well a "high-percentage" of his outings.

The REDS won today. Their Relievers were better than Washington's Relievers today, who as a whole, are much better than the REDS.

Those seven highlighted in Blue will be a phenomenal Relief corps, com August. And, Masset could also be a good piece in that group.

Good luck keeping those good era numbers up Giants when you go to Great American Ballpark

Hes not avaiable supposedly. Dusty said so to reporters to start the day.

Rhodes isn't available because Johnnie B. Baker chose to use him down 4-1 to the Cards on Wednesday and then up 5-1 vs. the Gnats on Saturday. If you can only use Rhodes in spots you would think Johnnie B. could pick better spots than that. Seriously, neither one of those qualifies as a high-leverage situation. Use him when you get the most bang for your buck.

All in all not a bad week of baseball. Breaking even on a road trip is acceptable. Without two outfield miscues the record could have been 5-1. Could have been.

Extra innings in St. Louis again today. 3-3 to the top of the 10th they go.

Reds
06-06-2010, 11:24 PM
extras. that was a nice play to tag the runner at third.

the Brewers better strike quick because St. Louis is one fire lately.

Brew crew with something cooking after Motte walks Fielder (to break his streak) and Braun beats out a slow grounder.

Bases loaded. Don't know why Motte throws anything other than his fastball.

Hart just misses one but he gets a runner in on the sac fly. Brewers lead 4-3. Now we get to watch what a truly horrible closing situation looks like.

Reds

And the Reds move into a first place tie, as the Brewers defeat the Cardinals 4-3 in 10 innings.
