    Re: We have to talk about Corky

    We have to talk about how awesome Corky is.
    "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."

    Should this thread be re-titled, "The Burying of Corky Miller"?

    As anyone reading this thread knows I love Corky Miller. Who doesn't love a guy who just keeps playing baseball knowing that the most he'll ever get is to be a bench catcher but every year comes back to the organization. And that mustache is icing on the cake.

    He also knows how to block the plate! The next great stat revolution. Plate blocking independent fielding.

    Callaspo knocked out of the game. He should have known better than to challenge Corky.

    Re: We have to talk about Corky

    With Hanigan due back and Corky lifted, have we seen the last of Corky or will he return in September? Either way we salute you Corky!

    Re: We have to talk about Corky

    Could the Reds be thinking about putting Corky on the DL in order to make him post season eligible? If Corky is on the DL August 31 He would be post season eligible plus the Reds could substitute for him on the roster as well. The Reds would be able to call up a catcher now as well and not risk corky being claimed on waivers.

    I like your thinking.


    But I think he's just banged up from the collision.

    Re: We have to talk about Corky

    Did Corky get pulled because he got hurt in the collision today, or was that just a straight pinch hit on Dusty's part? I know the other guy got hurt, but didn't think Corky did. Maybe he had some lingering effects and that's why he was pulled?
