    No doubt. But bottom line is that Cordero's contract makes less sense when you see the team around him.

    I don't know why, but every time he comes in, I cringe a bit because it seems you never know what you're going to get... except drama. He almost always puts someone on base.

    As much as I've heard that he's "lights out", both from broadcaster commentary and on this board, I've never agreed with that phrase as it applies to Cordero.

    I will continue to cringe when he takes the mound, but hopefully down the line, he'll perform well enough that I'll no longer do that.

    I think he's lights out, but he's on a dimmer switch.
    There is no such thing as a pitching prospect.

    You've been saying this for a while. And his numbers have been catching up to your feelings.
