Re: Dealing coco
Teams are looking to deal bad contracts of their own. If the Mets had a shot at keeping K-Rod from vesting while unloading Perez or Castillo, I'd bet they'd listen. A team like the Braves would listen for a chance to move McClouth and mentor the two young kids down there IMO. The Angels could use him and have a couple bad contracts to send back to make it nearly cash neutral.
Cordero did have 40 saves in 2010 and Dusty pretty much used both he and Rhodes up in the first half by ignoring his other options even when the team was behind at times. Some team trying to unload a bad deal of their own and hoping that an off-season of rest restores Coco a bit might be a taker. If the Reds hold onto him, I wouldn't be surprised if he doesn't bounce back a bit - at least until Dusty uses him up again.

Having better players makes "the right time" or "the big hit" happen a lot more often. PLUS PLUS
