Cordero Awarded $4.15 Million

Washington closer Chad Cordero was given a sizable raise after winning his arbitration case on Wednesday, going from a meager $525,000 salary last season to $4.15 million in 2007.

The Nationals offered the jolly right-hander a $3.65 million salary for last season's 29-save performance, 7-4 record and 3.19 ERA. The year before, he led the majors with 47 saves, a franchise record.

Cordero is a career 17-11 with a 2.61 ERA and 91 saves in 106 opportunities since his 2003 debut with the Montreal Expos.

I like it that he's "jolly".

The sad thing is, if someone gave me that kind of money, I probably actually would spend a lot of it on tacos.
