I agree, Cordero was overpaid. No question about it. At least he did the job though most of the time.
Like Mth said, I'd much rather spend money on Broxton than an injury rehab guy like Madson.. The analogy is kind of like Cordero worked out a lot better than Stanton did. Cordero was a lot more expensive, but at least he produced reasonably well. Stanton had negative value.
Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2012 AND 2013!
