Cordero Will Kill Me

Heading into the ninth in today's game with the Chicago Cubs, Cincinnati Reds closer Francisco Cordero had a three run run lead at 4-1. He promptly walked the first batter, struck out the next, then walked the next two and hit another batter. Fortunately, only one run scored. Nick Masset was called on. He struck out one, then walked in a run and struck out Marlon Byrd on a nasty slider to save the game. Reds win 4-3 to stay ahead of the Cardinals. Here's the story of the game. I feel like Fred Sanford of the show,"Sanford and Sons" when Cordero is on the mound. Can Cordero ever put down the other team one, two, three? Anyway, in the show, Fred Sanford (Redd Foxx) always fakes a heart attack when things would not go his way. He would say, "You hear that Elizabeth? I'm comin' to join ya, honey." Check it out.
