No idea how long Buck's leash is for Cordero. Popular theory would be that Alfonseca would be next in line, given his experience in the role. Personally, I would nominate Benoit based on his stuff, but I have reservations about whether he has the right temperament for the job.


Why wouldn't it be Otsuka? Regardless, unless he's pitching hurt, I don't see Cordero losing his job.


Forgot about him, to be honest. Don't think he's any better or worse than the others. Sure sounds like a committee if something is wrong with Cordero or if he just keeps getting raked.

Otsuka is the most logical to be next in line although anything is possilble.

HUH???

Hermanson's career could be over, Cotts is not a closer (and his '05 was probably a fluke at any rate) and McCarthy profiles strongly as a starter.


preach brother! and jenks .86 whip is nothing to scoff at.
