    Re: We have to talk about Corky

    Corky was awarded a ground rule single.
    "And why do false truths persist, getting passed down the decades as if they were fact? It comes back to the same point: People believe things that are wrong because, individually, people rarely investigate their own beliefs, particularly when what they believe makes sense intuitively. Even more so when those around them agree with them." -K.F.

    Re: We have to talk about Corky

    So last night Corky went 1 for 2, nailed a runner trying to steal, saved a couple of wild pitches that would have let in a run and made a really good play at the plate to prevent a run from scoring. I'm with the crowd that think's it's time for Corky to start his coaching and managerial career, but if Hanigan is ready to go and Corky is DFAd, that might be a pretty high note to end his big league career on.

    Having better players makes "the right time" or "the big hit" happen a lot more often. PLUS PLUS

    Was thinking the exact-same thing. That would be a good way for him to go out. George Costanza would be proud of him going out on a high note.

    He shouldn't even go back to Louisville. He should just end his playing career with last night's game. (If Hanigan is activated today that is. They might wait until the homestand to activate Hanigan.)

    For Corky, that would be like going out like John Elway.

    I'd like Corky to stick around this year to give us a 3rd catcher in September. Allows us to PH Mess early on if we want to if he's not starting.

    Did you really mean to spell it "Mess" or is that an auto-correct?

    Re: We have to talk about Corky

    While it is frustrating that he is on the big league team, Dusty's use of him is beyond frustrating. I don't consider myself a Dusty basher but his lineups and his handling of Mesoraco are painful. It took Mes 14 games into the season to get 3 starts. It took Corky a week to get 3 starts. The Corky problem is an issue but it is compounded because our manager refuses to let Mes play everyday and refuses to treat Corky like the player he actually is. Dusty does many things well that are not appreciated by fans but the things he does poorly he does very very poorly and playing Corky the way no other manager would is one of them. Walt is complicit in this too because he knows the way Dusty will use Corky when he puts him on the roster.

    Re: We have to talk about Corky

    Has anyone ever heard Corky talk?

    Does he sound like he looks?

    I would love to hang out with him for a while. I'm imagining something Kenny Powers esque.

    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    I heard a great interview with Corky on a local radio show this winter. Such an entertaining, intelligent man.

    I thought Reds fans appreciated intangibles. Corky is invaluable on long road trips. He knows where all of the good restaurants are.

    Probably the best deals maybe not the best restaurants. He doesn't have much (if any) bank I would imagine.

    But I would love to hang out with Corky for a week on the west coast.

    Corky is tweeting about Kentucky moonshine. I'm going to assume he isn't starting tomorrow.



    Or, should I assume he is starting?
