No More Corky

The much maligned backup catcher for the Braves, Corky Miller, has been designated for assignment (DFA'ed). Corky seemed like a likable enough player, and the other Braves players seemed to have an Orr-like enjoyment of him in the clubhouse, but in the end it really should come down to performance, and Corky just wasn't performing. In 26 games this season, Miller hit just .093 (5-for-54). With the Braves out of the playoff race, the team may finally be turning to their young players to let some of them develop. At catcher (and eventually backup catcher), the team will go with Clint Sammons for the remainer of the year. Through his first nine at-bats this year, Sammons has already equaled Miller's hit total for the year.
