    Who knew Matt Maloney & Jared Burton are both guitar players too?

    I am a closer, Cordero said Sunday after working a scoreless inning in his first exhibition game as a Blue Jay. Ive just got to close the eighth inning.

    Ive got to do a good job in the eighth inning so Sergio can do his job in the ninth. I think everyone in the bullpen is a closer because youve got to get the seventh inning, the eighth inning and then the ninth inning.
    I can dig it.

    A few minutes with Reds right-hander Mat Latos:

    On being traded by the Padres to the Reds for four players in the offseason: "Honestly, for about a month, I was kind of stunned. Then the more I started thinking about it, the more excited I got. For a team to give up four players for you, they must really want you. Then I saw the moves the Reds were making like signing Ryan Madson to be the closer, and it's obvious we're a team trying to win the (National League Central) this year. It's exciting to be in that kind of a situation, especially after finishing in last place (in the NL West) last year with the Padres.”

    On the pressure of the being the guy traded for four players: "I'd be lying if I said I haven't thought of that. I'm sure people in Cincinnati have some high expectations of me, and that's fine. At the same time, I can't put any extra pressure on myself. I really believe that if I go out and pitch the way I can that no one will even think how many guys were in the trade or any of that stuff."

    On being traded when it seemed he was a major part of the Padres' rebuilding effort: "I was led to believe that I was going to be a Padre for a long time. That's what the CEO (Jeff Moorad) told me, that's what the general manager (Josh Byrnes) told me, that's what the manager (Bud Black) told me. So it was a big surprise. At first, you kind of feel you like when your girlfriend breaks up with you; you're angry and you're hurt. I'm past that now, especially since spring training started. I'm with a good team and a good group of guys. It hurt, though, and I didn't see it coming at all."

    On what he is working on this spring: "Just working hard every day. I'm sure when Roy Halladay pitched his perfect game that he was getting his work in the next day. You can't take a day off in this game if you really want to be good at it. I really believe that."

    On his numerous tattoos: "I only have one—and it's not finished yet."

    I hated that song,but I enjoy your postings.Keep up the work.

    Although he got great players,I think Jocketty got hosed on every trade.The Yankees didn't overpay for their needs,but I think we did.
