    Disagree completely, no way would they pay $12 million for CoCo.

    Why just have Chapman in the 9th when you can have him in the 7th/8th and CoCo in the 9th?

    Not losing faith in Coco anytime soon.

    Coredero is playing well. I can't see trading him now as part of a salary dump...it's not like you could use his money to sign anyone else right now.

    Now, if you could get something usefull in return, or maybe work a 3 way deal where you pick up salary from another team that fills a need, I'd consider it. But I just can't see moving Cordero for prospects right now. Not from a contending team.

    I'm kind of expecting this to happen. Cordero is pitching well. They could have a puff piece written about how Coco lost a bunch of weight, got in shape for his contract year and is having a great season so far. Some team in need, that can afford him, would probably bite.

    But I make Ondrusek or Masset the closer, not Chapman. And hope Arredondo gets back in the next month or so.


    Then we could possibly turn the savings into filling some other holes.

    The real Coco.....

    Coco's Save %
    2010-83.3%
    2011-83.3%

    At least he is consistent....

    Trade CoCo. Maybe we can get a bag of circus peanuts in return.

    I'd trade him to the White Sox just to unload payroll.
    Then I'd make Ondrusek the closer.
    Then I'd turn around and make a trade with the Mets for Reyes and possibly Beltran (to hit behind Votto).

    Also you are mistaken. This is the Same team that took Alex Rios off waivers and took his 17 Million a year & LTC without even a blink... They can afford the 12 Million and they are in DIRE NEED of a Closer...

    I say Cordero for Sale straight up...

    What did you want from Cordero? Before this apperance his ERA was 1.29 with no loses or blown saves, in fact he actually had 2 wins, and you complain after one bad appearance where he was forced to get four outs due to Stubbs dropping a flyball.

    I think this thread dates back years, doesn't it?

    While I agree they would be willing to pay $12 million for a closer...I also think their GM is smart enough to realize Coco is nowhere CLOSE to a $12 million dollar player.
