    Can the Reds go far with Coco as the closer?

    has he had a 1-2-3 inning yet this season?
    there's nothing like bowling a 300 game! 13 now and retired.

    Cordero is one of the reasons the Reds will go far.

    Least of our worries. Take a look around the league my friend.

    Yes, he's had several. Not as many as many would like. But say what you want, he still gets the job done most nights. Who's the NL saves leader? And that's with him STRUGGLING thus far.

    He's a league average closer, there abouts. If the Reds don't make the postseason, I doubt it will be because of Cordero.

    But I do have my worries about him in the post season. Not too many teams make it to the World Series without a lights out closer, or at least one who is at that time.

    I know he's had some 1-2-3 innings, but whenever someone reaches base, I cry out "why can't he learn to waltz"? Crazy, but he now leads the league in saves, so he's getting it done more times than not, but it's an adventure nearly every time.

    I just counted his 1-2-3 games and surprisingly, it totals 11 now, which is a little more than a quarter of his appearances. The fact is, he's getting the job done even if he gives us all heart failure.

    I'm not overly worried about Cordero. If we get to the postseason just hope the whole team is clicking.

    that was kinda my thinking. i'm happy where we are but concerned about him blowing up at some point.

    Gosh. It has been a really long time since I've worried about what the Reds' closer would do in the post-season. Feels good!

    No, he's NOT the one getting it done... the defense behind him is what's getting it done. Perfect example of how a good record tells you absolutely nothing about the pitcher.

    When was the last time this team blew a late inning lead?

    He doesn't feel like he's living unless he has two on it seems. Which makes my chest hurt. It could be much worse though.

    Has anyone seen the Wheaties commercial with Albert Pujols? Is Cordero the pitcher in that commercial?
