That said, he should be a bullpen coach somewhere and the Reds should bring something more closely resembling a real life MLB backup catcher.
The point is that the Reds know what they are getting with Corky, and know who their two catchers are. If they went out and got somebody new they wouldn't be able to just send them up and down like they can Corky. If we make a move for a catcher it better be someone we want on our MLB roster, and someone we wouldn't mind having over Hannigan or Mes.
