....that's kinda the point. You could go out and have open tryouts and probably find somebody better in an afternoon. I get that people like Corky. He's apparently a good clubhouse guy, good with the pitchers, etc etc. He's Crash Davis without the bat. That said, he should be a bullpen coach somewhere and the Reds should bring something more closely resembling a real life MLB backup catcher.
