Another One Bites The Dust – Francisco Cordero Signs With The Reds

An article by posted on November 23, 2007

Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports, is reporting that the Reds have signed closer Francisco Cordero to a four-year, $46 million dollar contract according to his major league sources. It is the largest contract ever given to a closer and also includes an option for a fifth year that can bring the total value of the deal to $57 million dollars.

It’s the second significant hit that the Brewer’s bullpen has taken after losing Scott Linebrink to the White Sox on Wednesday.

I never thought of Cordero as a big time closer. He was effective and obviously solid, but he was not lights out. That’s a heck of a lot of money for a guy like him.

I hope everybody had a Happy Thanksgiving!
