10/21/07 2nd Annual "Chad Cordero's Brim Is As Flat As A..." Analogy Collection.

It all started again in early April of 2007...

      ...2-0 Nationals lead in the ninth. Chad Cordero warms in the bullpen. The first save opportunity of the season. Cordero wears the gray away Nationals uniform with the navy blue Nationals cap with it's white cursive "W" shadowed in red, and the brim of Cordero's cap is unbent, flat as, "Flat as the Braves offense tonight?" Scout, my brother, Braves Fan and Source For All Things Baseball offers. Flat as Scout's calls for a rally are falling on my ears here tonight. The Braves announcers claim there is a slight bend in Cordero's cap. Blasphemy!...
