Sucks for people who picked up Vargas. Too bad I missed the boat on Cordero thinking he would not be the closer, and someone just swiped him away from me. From Rotoworld:

Chad Cordero was named Montreal's closer by manager Frank Robinson.
Maybe Claudio Vargas will become a factor later on, but Cordero should hold on to the job as long as he continues to throw as well as he has all year long. Grab him if he's available in your league.

The question is, how better is his situation than Jimenez?
I'm back. Sorta.

check out his K totals over the past 2 weeks....he is defenitly being more aggressive with his pitches. He also has lowered his walks, which is huge if you are a closer.

I believe he was drafted 1st Round last year(?) and he has good stuff, kinda reminds me of Valverde, in my opinion (definetly just mine) you feel safe with them.

Yeah, those increased Ks are nice.

And in case you were doubtful, here's the story:

Notes: Cordero replaces Biddle
Center fielder Chavez makes return to Kansas City
By Robert Falkoff / MLB.com

KANSAS CITY -- Rocky Biddle out, Chad Cordero in.
Expos' manager Frank Robinson, after sleeping on the possibility, decided to change closers Tuesday with Cordero replacing Biddle for at least the immediate future. Biddle suffered his third blown save Sunday in Cincinnati when he surrendered a game-tying, two-run homer with two outs in the ninth.

"I didn't expect it, but it's part of the game," Biddle said. "If I'm not doing my job, I expect the manager to make his own decision. If he thinks somebody else can do it better, he's going to give it to him. I just have to earn that spot back."

Biddle converted 15 of his first 16 save opportunities last year, but suffered six blown saves in 25 chances thereafter. His 34 saves ranked fifth in the National League

This year, Biddle has 11 saves, but an 0-4 record with a 7.32 ERA.

"We don't have the same people we did last year and we've had a lot of injuries with the people we've picked up," Biddle said. "It's been a totally different year. I haven't been able to get in as much work as I did last year. But it's still a job to do and a role to fill. I haven't been filling it."

Cordero expressed surprise at the move after being called into Robinson's office where he was informed of the decision. He's 1-1 with a 2.18 earned run average in 27 games and opponents are hitting just .203 against him. By contrast, Montreal opponents were hitting .337 against Biddle.

"You would think that if he's going to make a change, he would give it to someone who has had more experience than I do," Cordero said. "But whatever he wants me to do, I'll just go out there and do my best. Everything is an opportunity."

I'm back. Sorta.

Do not boo Johnny.
