With a blown save that does not show any pattern but shows that the fallibility of a closer is clearly one week to the next, Francisco Cordero closed with a loss on Saturday in Wrigley.

Sure, every week is another and every game is a rebirth, but at the end of the day Cordero was a less than appreciated closer with the Brewers and now has his first loss in the 2011 season.

Cincinnati is already struggling, showing no consistency that mirrored this point in the 2010 season and yet the season is a new and the players are clearly more than the same.

The question is whether there is enough to move past the first round of the playoffs.
