    No question, taking away Milwaukee hammer in the bullpen was a monster coup. Now Milwaukee is having MAJOR bullpen issues, similar to our nightmare last year. Meanwhile, the Reds bullpen is strong and Cordero is NAILS when it comes to closing a game. It is so nice to have a legitimate, All-Star closer and to know you have a beast in the 9th if you're clinging to a 1 run lead.

    I like him and all but a 3 run save is nothing to get too excited about.

    Um, last year we blew more than a few games that had a bigger lead than that so I'll take having a strong closer to fortify our pen over last year's bullpen problems.

    Ummm...wow. What, then, is your position/opinion on the Reds getting Cordero for the next 4 years. Please state your opinion for the record.

    Tell you what, raise your kid, or even grand kid to be a ML closer and let him do it for the league minimum. Yeah, I didn't think so.

    I like him. It was good to sign him. It is nice having a real closer. I'm just saying it is a three run save. Danny Graves made a fortune converting those. Weathers blew just one three run save last season. The three run save was not the Reds problem last season.

    It wasn't the 3-run save I was referring to in my post (posted before the game ended). I think you missed the point. Sure the save was nice, but it was even better watching 1)Corey Patterson make Gagne blow a save with 1 strike to go in the 9th, 2) Watching the Milwaukee bullpen implode in game 2 of the series, and 3) Hearing the announcers talk yesterday about hoping Turnbow gets it together (quite unlikely). What I was mentioning was it was cool that with one FA move...the balance of power in terms of bullpens completely shifted, which was quite evident in this series. Now of course Cordero wouldn't have been out there for each item I listed, but of couse the signing was somewhat of an indirect cause of each item.

    But hey, since you mentioned it...I'll enjoy the awesome,outstanding,lights-out save that Coco racked up.
