Los Angeles Angels
The January 24th, 2012 edition of daily news for the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim including Francisco Cordero to chose between Angels and three other teams this week, Trumbo finally starts working at the move to third base, Howie Kendrick is the most frustrating Angel (really?) and much more...
The Story: Reliever Francisco Cordero is reportedly going to choose between four teams, including the Angels, this week.

The Angels are one of four finalists to acquire free-agent reliever Francisco Cordero, his agent said, but it is unclear whether they are recruiting the veteran right-hander as a closer or set-up man.
Angels General Manager Jerry Dipoto has maintained all winter that he is not looking to replace closer Jordan Walden, who as a rookie last season went 5-5 with a 2.98 earned-run average...
The Toronto Blue Jays agreed to terms with closer Francisco Cordero on a one-year deal worth $4.5 million on Tuesday.
Cordero became a free agent after the Cincinnati Reds decided to pay his $1 million buyout. The righthander posted a 5-3 mark with a 2.45 ERA and converted 37 of 43 save opportunities last season, including 20 of 21 after the All-Star break.

He’ll go down as one of the best relievers in Phillies history, not to mention the most famous for his pose after throwing that beautiful slider to Carlos Ruiz in the 2008 World Series. We’ll always have those memories.Francisco Cordero has been one...
Wow, the market really collapsed for Francisco Cordero. It appears he is going to the Blue Jays…as a setup man.
I know I’m probably in the minority, but I’m a fully-paid member of the CoCo Fan Club. Sure, he had his occasional problems, and he frustrated me just as much as he did you guys. In the end, however, he was what you would call a “stand-up guy.”
On the heels of giving starter Brandon Morrow an extension, the Blue Jays struck again, signing free agent reliever Francisco Cordero to a one year, $4.5 million contract. After spending the last eight years closing for the Rangers, Brewers and Red, Cordero will be heading to a set-up role for newly acquired Toronto closer Sergio Santos.
