Corey Patterson Watch: Corey's Coming Back?!?

As per super beat writer extraordinaire John Fay of the super newspaper extraordinaire Cincinnati Enquirer, Reds outfielder Ryan Freel strained his hamstring in last night's contest in Philadelphia and is headed to the DL. Who might replace him on the active roster, John?

Freel being out probably mean Corey Patterson will be back. With Ken Griffey Jr. hurting, the Reds need an outfielder. Patterson on the roster. I know that won't be a popular choice. But there aren't any alternatives. Norris Hopper still can't thorw. Chris Dickerson is on the roster, but he's hitting .253 with 44 strikeouts in 154 at-bats.

This is the second best Corey-related news I've heard all week.

In other news, when asked about the latest Reds call-up, 5-foot-6 pitcher Danny Ferrera, Dusty Baker had this to say:

"He looks like the bat boy," Dusty Baker said. "But it's a great story. You've either got to be above the speed limit to be successful or under it."

Just don't be exactly at the speed limit or you're fucked.

Norris Hopper still can't THROW? Is that what he misspelled? Yeah I dont think I'd want him on the major league roster either.

"He looks like the bat boy," Dusty Baker said. "But it's a great story. You've either got to be above the speed limit to be successful or under it."

Is it just me or does this make absolutely no sense at all?

@bc

I also have no idea what the hell he is getting at.

"If it weren't for my horse I wouldn't have spent that year in college."

Norris "two" Hopper still can't throw

See CTC I can make clever bermanesque nick names too.

What I can't do is HTML and spell for that matter.

Corey Heart hit an inside the parker today. That's pretty good Corey-related news if you are a Brewers fan

I think my Tigers are trying Dusty's "success under the speed limit" hypothesis. But the only drivers who go under the speed limit are people who are stoned and Iowans.

or only drive their Buicks on Sundays.

I haven't seen Bobby Crosby hit like this since his rookie year.
