    And he's shown that he will do that, time after time, has he not?

    When Corky's mustache gains sentience and takes over the world (think SkyNet but hairier) y'all are doomed.

    I welcome our new overlord.

    But yes, I agree with the general idea -- if Hanigan's an ongoing injury concern and Corky is what they think the best AAA option is, we need a better AAA option.

    I told my Dad yesterday at the game, "Corky is gonna crank a homer off the Batters Eye and then his mustache is gonna run the bases."

    They use Corky because he will clear waivers and can be dropped from the 40 man roster when Ryan comes back. They must believe Nevin Ashley would not clear waivers

    As I understand it, there is no player you'd rather sit next to on the bench than Corky Miller. Supposedly he's a spectacular human. As a short term bench anchor, I can see where calling up the universally beloved future manager of the Reds makes some sense.

    I bet he rocks in rain delays too.

    Bruce just made a beautiful throw to the plate and Corky's poor block (IMO) cost the Reds a run.

    If it looks like Hannigan's injury will be around the rest of the year, we need to give Ashley a shot or start shopping.

    I know this seems reactionary, but it's been in my mind for about a week.

    He would be a helluva guy to have a beer with after the game.....even better if he didn't catch that night.

    That was some terrible catching technique. Corky is a great guy and will make a fine manager. He is no longer capable of being a big league catcher. It is actually painful to watch because I like the guy so much.

    It's a technical position, it is so ingrained visually with TV that I believe the position has lost an allure that it had prior. Not that it matters, but I caught for a year in 5th grade, it was something... sitting there looking out at your teammates.

    Magical...

    Break the magic in pro ball by placing a person who can't get it done and it's a different animal.
