Just thought I'd throw this out there. . .

Against NL teams this year (Hou, SD, SF, COL, ARI) Cordero has

6.1 IP, 1 ER, 3 HITS, 1 BB, 7 Ks

In other words he's piched very good against the NL teams he's faced, so maybe he'll have alot of confidence coming in.

This from the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel:

«Yost said he would look at both Turnbow and Cordero in determining who would close games for the rest of the season.

"Production will decide who closes games," said Yost. "We still believe in Derrick Turnbow. He's had a couple of rough weeks but he's had a pretty solid year and a half for us."»

That's great--no mention of Kolb AT ALL. That was short-lived.

Who gets the next save chance? Does Turnbow have any realistic shot at regaining/holding the job?

Yea I'm prettyyyyyy sure that Yost is just doing the politically correct thing here. He's not gunna totally bash his pitcher, I mean his head is already fkd up enough as it is. Regardless of what he says about "splittling saves" I'd have to believe that he's not going to put Turnbow in the game with a 1-run lead.

He has a chance to become closer. He got AL hitters out every other year, but even though he has been bad this year, facing the NL will help him out a lot.

I could be wrong, but I made the switch w/out hesitation right when I heard about the deal.

From Closer Watch Blog

Derrick Turnbow to Closer in place of Dan Kolb
Francisco Cordero to 1st in line in place of Derrick Turnbow
Dan Kolb to 2nd in line in place of Matt Wise

Manager Ned Yost announced yesterday that Turnbow will be returning to his closers' role, even after the acquisition of former closer Cordero from Texas. Kolb converted his only save opportunity filling in for the demoted Turnbow, but it appears Milwaukee isn't ready to bail on their all-star asset in Turnbow just yet. (I think it's possible Kolb could get another save opportunity or two before Turnbow returns to the role).

Cordero has to be an extremely close next in line closer here as Turnbow can not have much rope if Yost does go back to him. The former Ranger has a 1.31 WHIP in 49+ IP with 55 K on the season. Cordero had a terrible April in which he allowed 15 runs in 11 IP while losing his closers' job.


The question now is, do we start Cordero this week or wait for Turnbow to implode first?

bad news for us Cordero speculators... Turnbow actually closed out a game tonight... of course, Cordero looked much more dominant... though not so much so on paper.
