Pending an uneventful physical, Francisco Cordero is now a Cincinnati Red. Cordero just inked a four year $46 million deal. Bye, Bye Franky! I can't believe the Crew offered him $42 million. The Reds can have him at that price.
I'm a firm believer that a good team can always go out and find someone to close games. If you have a team that is strong in most aspects of the game except say a solid closer, that team can normally make a deal with a struggling team that happens to have one.
Now it's time to see what deals the Brewer "Brass" can make. I still have all the confidence in the world in Melvin and company.
Don't panic, Brewer faithful! Everything will be just fine. Personally, I can't wait to see Cordero cough up his fair share of games in'08. Don't get me wrong............. I thought Francisco did a real nice job for the Crew. It's just that his asking price was way too high.
What say you?
