How good is Cordero?

Postby LeftyQB » Fri Jul 11, 2003 11:44 pm

A lot of folks seem to be going out and grabbing Cordero. Is he going to make that much of a difference, or is he going to make good trade bait? I'm not sure if dropping one of my players for him will be worth it. I'm 9th out of 10 in saves and have Baez and Williamson. I don't think Texas is that much better...So is Cordero really worth it?

If Baez qualfies at SP and RP in your league like he does in yahoo leagues then it would be worth it for you. You would then be able to have 3 closers in at all times and gain some ground in saves.

Cordero had a 1.79 era and a 1.01 whip last year. Texas has given 30 save opportunities to Urbina so far. Yes, Cordero is a good pickup. Tucker seems to be the one to let go in order for you to get him. Maybe closers aren't that hard to find in your league, but in 4 out of my 5, a closer with a job is almost impossible to get without trading for one.
