    Cordero getting a bad rap?

    Can't say I've been a big supporter of him, but I was just looking at the NL saves leaders, Cordero is tied for 9th, but is only 3 within 4th. Only 4 saves seperate the 4th and 11th leaders in saves in the NL.

    He has 6 blown saves, which seems like a lot, but I started comparing him to the closers up there near him, and noticed he's not too far off:

    Saves leaders
    8) Brandon Lyon, 5 BS
    7) Trevor Hoffman, 3 BS (but 1-6 record? Go figure)
    6) Kerry Wood, 5 BS
    5) Billy Wagner, 7 BS
    4) Kevin Gregg, 7 BS
    3) Brad Lidge, PERFECT 31/31
    2) Jose Valverde, 6 BS
    1) Brian Wilson, 3 BS

    Besides Lidge, Wilson, and Hoffman (maybe?) - I don't think Cordero is any worse overall than any other closer in the NL. Maybe he's overpaid, so he gets more heat, but his performance isn't bad compared to other closers.

    I really believe he would be better if he had more oppurtunities. He's a successful pither, otherwise he wouldn't scontinue to pitch year after year. He'll be ok, he just needs a successful team to close for.

    They just said on the news that Cordero had to leave the team for personal reasons. I hope everything is all right.

    He's paid like the best Closer in MLB. He ain't close to that. Yes, he made the bullpen better, but he has increased my use of Tums. And to think Nathan was supposedly dangled as available last winter.............

    how could such an inept pathetic squad thinks that a closer is their biggest need, how about a center fielder a catcher a manager and dont forget keep Todd Coffey and Majewski around, it makes one wish for Ted Weiand and Brad Pennington

    Fay's blog said Cordero left the team to be with his wife who is having a baby this week. Congrats to him and his wife and I'm glad it wasn't anything serious that caused him to leave the team!
