My latest article is up at The Hardball Times, and it's about Francisco Cordero. In case you hadn't noticed, he's a pretty good pitcher:

In fact, the Brewers hold a $5 million club option on one of the best relief pitchers of the last five years. Cordero may not be a top-tier guy--walking a man every other inning sees to that--but he's awfully close. The going rate for first-rank closers is into eight figures per year, but Coco's numbers suggest that Milwaukee will get an eight-figure performance for their mid-seven-figure outlay.
Of course, you should read the whole thing.
