Rockies Interested In Chad Cordero

Surprisingly, Ken Rosenthal is indicating that the Rockies are interested in Nationals closer Chad Cordero.  I didn't realize the Rockies were that serious about bullpen help, but it makes sense.  However, Cordero doesn't seem like the right target as he is a flyball pitcher.

It may be a moot point in that discussions haven't occurred for weeks between the two clubs.  It seems that Jim Bowden is looking for two of the Rockies' five best prospects, and they have some excellent ones.  Of course, Trader Jim is in the catbird seat.  Other highlights of Rosenthal's article:

  • The Rangers want a decent right-handed hitting fourth outfielder like Chris Denorfia or Jason Ellison.  Ellison seems more likely to be dealt as he's out of options.  Ellison's not young, but hitting .400 for a third of a season at Triple A should draw some attention.
  • In addition to the Cubs, Marlins, and Rangers, the Twins like Clint Barmes.  Despite an awful '06, Barmes definitely has his uses.  PECOTA calls for a fairly solid .277/.321/.421 line.
  • Perhaps in an attempt to lead the league in DL days, the A's inquired on Chris Snelling.  Again, Bowden asked for too much in return.
