Mets sign Relief Help

The Mets made a big signing today, inking 28 year old former closer Chad Cordero to a minor league deal. Wait we are in the year 2010 and the last time he pitched more than 9 innings was 2007? He has a career FIP of 4.05, including a 5.09 this year with the Mariners. This year's ERA is 6.52. He's walked 4.7/9 this year in the 9 games; just want the Mets need. Another bullpen arm that puts too many runners on base (1.55 WHIP). His fastball is back up to 88 mph this year, from 83 mph in 2008 (he didn't pitch in the majors last year).

He's a fastball, slider pitcher with an occasional change-up (83 mph). He also seems to have added a curveball this year (77 mph).

All I see in this move is Omar signing another former Montreal Expo.  Yawn...
