Making room for Ludwick and other DL guys

A few familiar names are back on the Reds’ active roster at last, putting pressure on some different people for a change. Ryan Hanigan came off the DL on Friday. He’d been out since July 11 with a left wrist sprain. To make room for Hanigan, they put Corky Miller on the DL with a “right quadriceps contusion” or, in other words, one of our heroes sustained a slight bruise...

Corky Miller exits with injury

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.

Bring on Corky

Everyone wants Corky Miller’s autograph.Ryan Hanigan is suffering from a sore left wrist that was so bad the other day that he couldn’t close his hand. It’s a little hard to catch a pitch without that particular skill. Meanwhile, Devin Mesoraco is suffering from back spasms that are bad enough that he’s obviously cringing on the field. He wasn’t exactly great at throwing...

Hoping a day off fixes what ails the Reds

Yesterday, the Cincinnati Reds didn’t play baseball. At least, I assume they didn’t. With them being on their first west coast trip of the season, the games start so late that I could easily miss them. The Reds have been struggling lately, which is never how you want to see them when they’re heading out west. My, there’ve been some seasons lost out west. That won’t happen...

Friday 5: Corky Miller

An Ode to Corky Miller: The Hacksaw Jim Duggan of Big Leaguers

I just got the alert on my phone, Ryan Hanigan is returning to the Cincinnati Reds lineup tonight. And so likely ends one of the more bizarre careers in big league history. Maybe.
