Francisco Cordero - Record Setter?

Postby StlSluggers » Fri Sep 17, 2004 2:30 pm

This is the first I've heard of this. Did anyone else here know about it? How rare is this?

The Dallas Morning News reports that "Having already rewritten the Rangers' record book for relievers, Francisco Cordero sits on the brink of doing something truly historic. He is within three weeks of pitching a full season in the majors without allowing a home run. Such a feat is so unheard of, the Rangers are treating it almost like a no-hitter. They don't want to talk about it. But the level of the potential accomplishment is so grand, they can't help themselves. "I'd rather not say anything," manager Buck Showalter said, knocking on the faux-wood finish of his desk. "He supplies so much of the power. It makes it that much harder for him to do it." Cordero, who set the club record for saves in a season Sunday with his 44th, has pitched 62 innings over 60 appearances. Cordero (3-2) kept his homerless streak intact Monday at Oakland but allowed Eric Byrnes' 10th-inning RBI single that gave the A's a 7-6 victory."

Wow....I'm a Rangers fan an was unaware of the home run thing. :-? I knew he broke Wetteland's save record for a Ranger's reliever, but I was unaware of the other part.

Thanks, and I'll be watching him a bit closer now. ;-D

no but it just seems to be the general rule. people talk about something thats on the far side of hard to accomplish and automaticaly goes bad. (hence no hitters that people bring up in the game commentary forum. they end almost immediatley after being posted)

i hope he does it though. that would be an awesome feat.

I've got faith in Cordero. ;-D He surpassed all my expectations for this year (and they were fairly lofty), so I believe he can do it. ;-D

I thought about that, Logan, but I didn't feel bad posting it because all of Dallas already knows. What's a few dozen people more going to do to add to the "curse"?

Does anybody know what the most innings pitched in year where the pitcher also didn't give up a home run is? I have no idea where to start to get info like that.

Tavish is pretty good with records. I bet he can find out. :-)

Candy Cummings pitched 417 innings in 1875 for the record. Here is every player since 1947 with more than 60 IP and no HRA. Greg Minton had 3 consecutive seasons in 79-81, pretty amazing.
