Chad Cordero's 'fastball' is as flat as his brim

Lesson No. 1 why you shouldn't just blindly dump Jon Rauch from your fantasy team because you couldn't wait to get him off your team once Chad Cordero came off the DL.

From the Washington Post:

"(Cordero) threw 20 pitches Wednesday night, none faster than 82 mph ... Cordero is adamant that he doesn't feel any pain. But there is clearly something wrong."

Guess the old saying is true: When you lie with dogs Washington closers, you get fleas 76-mph heaters. More on the situation at our excellent fantasy blog, Roto Arcade.
