Easily the best facial hair in baseball currently. He came through in some pretty clutch moments for us last year and is always nice to have for a 3rd option (or 2nd string if Hernandez doesn’t come back.)

How many 34-year olds go by the name “Corky”?

Corky was my favorite player while in the Red Sox minor league system, so I’m glad to see he made the site!

Welcome back Corky! I really hope he isn’t the 2nd-string catcher tho, that would suck.

Is it me, or am I missing something here… He refused an outright assignment, yet, signed a minor league deal? What’s up with that?!

It’s just for bookkeeping. You’ll see that 100 times this off-season. It’s all bookkeeping.
