Why wouldn't you do it now......
The answer is Dusty doesn't want to hurt Coco's feelings.
It's a joke, your trying to develop a team that can compete for a World Series.
Giving him a chance to close now when the Reds are out of the race
makes way too much sense to do it.
I think that Dusty wants to make sure Cordero passes Jose Mesa on the all-time saves list as soon as possible. After that he might be more open to using Chapman at the end. Stuff like this is why players like Dusty. Stuff like this is why more analytical observers are driven crazy by Dusty.
