Just a Good Conversation: Chad Cordero Just a Good Conversation

Chad Cordero is one of the greatest baseball players to ever wear a Cal State Fullerton uniform. For three years (01-03) he was unstoppable on the mound. He was drafted by the Expos in the 1st round (20th overall). Cordero's best season was in 2005, when he was an All-Star and won the Rolaids Relief Man Award. During the period of 2005–2007, he recorded 113 saves. He completed the 2005 season with 47 saves, leading the major leagues, and was selected to the National League pitching staff for the 2005 MLB All-Star game. Cordero (at age 25 years and 86 days) became the second youngest player in baseball history to reach 100 saves in a career. (Francisco Rodríguez is the youngest at 24 years and 246 days old. Cordero missed almost all of the 2008 season after undergoing surgery to repair a labrum tear, an injury he suffered in April.[2] On October 30, 2008 the Nationals sent him outright to AAA Syracuse, and he rejected the assignment, becoming a free agent. Among other reasons for Cordero's rejection was that he was displeased with how he found out that he would be "non-tendered" by the Nationals at the end of the season—via an impromptu comment made by Nationals' GM Jim Bowden on a radio show in July. Chad has two children: Riley and Tehya. Tehya died of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome in 2010. He was named head coach of the Iolani softball team in Hawaii. — Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/matt-brown57/support
