Listening to FM on my way to the ballpark and I heard WLWT’s Sheree Paolello doing a news update. She read a couple of items about the Reds winning the division title (uh oh, news anchor talking about sports makes me nervous like a closer in a non-save opp) and then mentioned that Jay Bruce’s title-clinching home run ball had been located, retrieved by Reds relief pitcher Corky Miller after it bounced back onto the field.
Wha? Reds relief pitcher? Forget Cordero and Chapman – what about Corky as our closer?! I’m picturing Corky as Kenny Powers from “Eastbound and Down”.
