    Hernandez activated, Miller sent to Louisville

    Ramon Hernandez has been activated. He is actually starting at 1st today in place of Votto who is being given the day off. Corky Miler is being sent back to Louisville.

    Someone's going to need to pick up the facial hair slack that Corky's departure is leaving.
    "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'll give Corky his due. He did a good job while filling in as a backup catcher. Also added that always needed 70's look too.

    Miller had to be DFAed. He could get claimed. Hope not. The guy is valuable as an insurance policy in Louisville.

    Really wouldn't surprise me if he gets picked up. He's a good handler of pitchers. If a contender needs a dependable veteran backup catcher he could certainly fill that void for someone.

    I think he may get claimed by the 1974 Oakland A's.

    He would fit in well with that team.

    Corky has said he loves this organization so even if he were claimed, I'd not be the least bit surprised to see him back after the season.

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    Thanks for the fill-in, Corky. You did better than I expected at the plate and I like to think that you are a good handler of the pitchers.

    Miller did a great job for the Reds! (other then getting thrown out at second on a hard hit ball in the gap between center and right field )

    Re: Hernandez activated, Miller sent to Louisville

    What once seemed like an inconsequential trade that I think I even scoffed at ended up benefiting the Reds. When Walt sent Norris Hopper to the White Sox for Corky Miller I laughed and wondered what the heck he was thinking. Not that Norris would ever see the majors again but what would Corky bring to the club. In reality Corky has done exactly what you would hope for him to do. Be ok with going to the minors, be able to call a good game when called upon at the major league level. Anything else is just gravy.
