Beautiful job by Chad Cordero
Excellent job indeed.
How can you not like this guy? After reading those twin profiles of Chief in the WaPo
and the WaTimes
, it's obvious he's living The Baseball Dream right now: in his second year
he's become the game's most dominant closer, he has a shot at the all-time save record this season, he's pitching in the All-Star Game...and he's still a goofy, happy-go-lucky kid. (I swear to god he looks like a Peanuts character on the sandlot with his hat down on his head like that.)
7-5, two out, bottom of the ninth. Rivera coming in. No way we pull this off.
