BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2014 Due to publishing agreements, the 2014 player comments and team essays are only available in the Baseball Prospectus 2014 book (available in hardcopy, e-book, and Kindle).
2013 A study in persistence, Corky Miller re-signed with the Reds in the hope of playing that elusive 200th big-league game after spending all of 2012 at Triple-A Louisville.
2011 Corky Miller has managed to spend parts of 10 seasons in the majors despite a .188 career average, which goes to show both that a good defensive catcher never goes hungry, and that everyone likes the name “Corky.”
2008 Minor league free agent Corky Miller hits a little better than the average backup catcher.
2005 Another one who didn't quite pan out while perennially riding the Louisville-Cincinnati shuttle, Miller sealed his fate with a brutal 1-for-39 season in Cincy. Rany Jazayerli likes to say that any backup catcher with some degree of skill can put up a magical season given 200 or fewer at-bats—the same holds true for a disastrous season, though a .026 average is pushing it. Still, Miller's shown a pulse in the past, and Minnesota should at least get an upgrade over a 67-year-old Pat Borders.
2003 Catchers can come from anywhere. Miller wasn’t even drafted out of college, but made The Show just three years after signing a pro contract. Last season, he had played his way into the majority of the starts, but was farmed out to Louisville when Stinnett was activated because he had options left. Miller is an outstanding receiver, pitchers love working with him and he even has fair offensive potential. He’ll be on the Reds roster this year, probably as the starter. Cool fact: Corky is his given name.
2002 Miller is an outstanding defender who gets good marks for his receiving, plate-blocking, and game-calling, from Bob Boone himself no less. He’s not the athlete that Jason LaRue is, but that might not be the criterion the Reds use in choosing between them. The Reds are intrigued enough to consider going with a Stinnett/Miller combination if the right deal for LaRue comes along, and it would be cheap and effective to do so.

2014-04-21 13:00:00 (link to chat)I'm a Reds fan who lives in Louisville. Who would you recommend I focus on when I go to Bats games? I know Stephenson is a big deal, but he isn't there yet. Who should I put on my radar in the Reds' system who will be in AAA at some point this summer? I can't just cheer for Corky Miller sightings forever!
(Daniel from Louisville)
I can't help you out much. The Louisville roster isn't great. Triple-A in general can be hard to watch, at least from a prospect standpoint. There's so much major league depth there among guys who either no longer qualify as prospects or where never good enough to qualify in the first place. Lots of Quad-A guys in Louisville. The good news is that Stephenson will be worth the wait.

Guys, you should see this sandwich. (Jeff Moore)
2011-12-14 13:00:00 (link to chat)Please ranl these three Cincinnat icons by sexyness: C Trent, Corky Miller,& cincinnati chili.
(Kyle from Cincinnati)
C. Trent is the only one worth ranking. Easy choice. Trent is awesome. (Jason Parks)
2009-09-29 13:00:00 (link to chat)I thought you'd answer "Yankees backup C" :)
(Wade from TX)
That would have been a fun answer, but although I tend to bitch about carrying an automatic out on the bench, I'm not sure how high our expectations should really be. As I wrote in today's You Could Look It Up, I'm looking for something better than Kevin Cash/Corky Miller, but much more than that probably isn't too realistic... John Flaherty hit .259/.291/.461 from 2003-2004, which is basically Miguel Olivo, obviously not great, but also not horrible given the alternatives. He had some big hits, too... (Steven Goldman)
