Red Hot Mama:
Get well soon, Corky.OK, it’s just a bruise, but Corky Miller left the game this afternoon after the fifth inning with a right quad contusion. I didn’t see it for myself, but it sounds like it was sustained during a collision at the plate with Alberto Callaspo.
Callaspo was out, by the way. Also, Miller was one of the offensive heroes of today’s game. It’s not relevant to this discussion, but it is awesome.
The catcher’s spot has been gimpy for a while now. I mean, Corky is an awesome guy and all, but the Reds are in trouble when they’re bringing up a 37-year old to play backstop.
Fortunately for the team, Ryan Hanigan was already slated to be returning to action for the next series against the Padres this weekend, and both catchers have another day off tomorrow for their injuries to heal.
I don’t think we can count on this luck holding out, though. All the trouble we’ve had with offense, and it may yet be the catching situation that turns out to be the Achilles heal of this team.
BEST OF MAXIM
