He'll likely be traded in real life at the all-star break since he's a pending-FA this year.

don't drop a closer.. especially one with job security and a track record like cordero

even if the nationals only win one game a week that can add up

I would advise against that move. :-t

Be patient; everyone's too trigger-happy during the first few weeks of the season...

2K's and the save: not bad. Good thing you didn't drop him before the game ended. :-D

I'm going to assume you're joking. Unless Saves are extremely devalued in your league for whatever reason, even considering dumping a guy like Cordero would be a rookie mistake. When you get past the upper tier of extremely expensive closers, Cordero's one of the best options out there. Yeah, he hasn't gotten a lot of opportunities early, and when he has gone out there, he's looked rusty. Well, yeah, he probably is. But the opportunities will come. The Nats may not win a lot of games, but when they do win, they sure aren't going to be blowouts. You may not have had any luck dealing him, but my guess is at least half of your league would put in a waiver claim if you dropped him. Without seeing your roster, this is one of the last guys you cut.

Even if the Nats only win 50 games he should get around 25-30 saves. They aren't going to win by much when they win.

It wouldn't surprise me if they kept him around, like they did Soriano last season, and get nothing in return for him.

Is he really? He's not even arbitration eligible anymore?
