Coco came back the very next day


As we wait for word on if closer Francisco Cordero will return to Cincinnati Reds, I thought I would share some information about what he did in 2011 for the Reds. A lot of people say that he is starting to decline but I think he still has a few more good years left in the tank. Everyone thinks the Reds are the top guys right now and that he should sign the one year deal (not sure if there is an option on this contract offer) that would bring him back. I think the Sean Marshall and Mat Latos trades might have a big impact on if he re-signs with the Reds.

Out of his 37 saves in 2011 he only gave up one home run, which was against Colorado Rockies on Thursday, August 11, 2011, at Great American Ball Park. Seth Smith hit it off of Cordero in the 9th inning with 0 on and 0 out to deep RF.

Another thing about his 37 saves that caught my interest was that he only came into one game where he had inherited runners. (2) That game was on Sunday, May 15, 2011, at Great American Ball Park against St. Louis Cardinals. The two inherited runners both came in to score that game.
