    It looks like Miller has been outrighted seven different times in his career (presumably heading for No. 8). I wonder aloud what the record for most outright assignments by a major league player is.
    hope he gets it - I think he deserves it
    The older I get - the better I was

    and yes - I hate the Cardinals (Reds fan since 1958)

    Re: Hannigan activated

    We will likely see Corky in a Reds uniform during September so on the (hopefully only two out of every five) games that Ryan catches, Dusty can use Mes as a pinch hitter from the right side and have an emergency catcher.

    I suppose it is possible to put Corky on a playoff roster for the same reason if you are going to remove a reliever or two from the 25 man for the playoffs. I mean, I wouldn't think Corky would play unless an injury or very long extra inning game happens, but if it means the Reds can freely use Mes as a pinch hitter a couple times in a series in key situations, that probably has more value than bringing a 6th outfielder who isn't as good as Mes at swinging the bat.

    So, if the Reds drop a couple relievers from the 25 man for the playoff roster, I wouldn't mind seeing Corky (for the ability to pinch hit Mes) and Billy Hamilton (for the ability to pinch run late in a close game). Hopefully neither sees a playoff AB though.

    Bronson is the least likely to "need" Hanigan.

    I'd have Hanigan catch Bailey every start and 1/2 of Bronson's.....giving Meso 7 starts every 10 games.

    I don't think it's about "need". I think it's that Bronson "wants" Hanigan behind the plate.
    Eric Stratton, Rush Chairman. Damn glad to meet ya.

    Basically that's my definition of "need" for this.

    I bet every single pitcher on the staff wants Hanigan to be receiving their pitches. He calls and good game and is one of the best receivers behind the dish.

    Re: Hanigan activated

    Broxton back, Hanigan back and Ludwick back by this weekend. Hopefully Cueto and Marshall come back at some point this year, but I fear they are out until 2014.

    This team has some dead weight on the 40 man roster, Freeman, Villarreal, Corky, Izturis, etc. We need some guys to step up this offseason and make the jump.

    Did Hanigan get a rehab before returning? I show him with 9 minor league plate appearances and those were in early May. Maybe the Reds felt they did not have the luxury of a rehab with catching so thin and Corky banged up.
