He may have sucess this year, but I don't think he'll have a 30+ saves year in 2005. He will come close to 30 but I feel that is about it.

i wouldn't call $300,000/yr a boatload of money. well, for ballplayers at least.

i still don't think that cordero will get enough opp's to get 30 saves this year, with ayala getting too many.

When he says 'boatload' he includes the signing bonus that the Expos gave Cordero less than two years ago. They invested a first round pick, and, I assume, a signing bonus upwards of a million, which is quite a bit for a guy who you leave in middle relief... But for a 'closer' it ain't that bad. (no I don't think the title should be as special as it is made out to be, but that's the way the game is today)

Robinson is a moron, but realistically, why would he committee this if Cordero is getting the job done? There is little to be gained by switching/sharing the duties at closer unless Cordero is just too fragile or just no good.

I can't think of a single committee approach that was implemented when one of th RPs was doing a respectable job. Usually it is because the guy with the job is stinking it up and the manager gets tired of it. If COrdero is pulling a Speier/Frasor or Rhodes then he is not going to be worth much anyway.
