    This should really help the Reds!!

    Ken Rosenthal reports that the Reds have come to an agreement with Francisco Cordero. The terms: four years and $46 million, with a $11 million club option for 2012. It's still pending a physical. Rosenthal points out that this is the largest four-year deal ever given to a closer.
    The Brewers had offered four years at $42 million. There was no mention of whether Cordero gave them a chance to match the Reds offer.

    Reds gain Brewers lost, Cordero has been a proven closer in recent years and he's going to be a great addition to the Reds, but they need to get some good starting pitchers, because he won't be used a lot if they loose tons of games like they've done in recent years.

    Great pickup for the Reds. They have needed a closer for sometime now. He'll help them out a lot.

    Bad for the Brewers though. He was very good for them now they'll have to get a new closer or try Turnbow again.

    Come on can you let this guy go? You cannot use TurnBLOW as your closer. THey will not compete next year if they do.

    As much as I hate the Reds and regardless of how stupid and moronic I think their General Manager is, this is an excellent sign by them. Just what they needed.

    How about this for the brew crew.........

    It will be surprising if the Twins don't trade closer Joe Nathan, perhaps to the Milwaukee Brewers, in the coming weeks.

    Getting Joe Nathan would be unbelievable and should cost them a ton in return. Nathan is one of the most talented and consistenst closers in all of baseball
