Who Remembers Corey Patterson?

The Nationals have just sent the ex-Cub down to the minors. Patterson, who was 5-for-40 in March, batted only .205 last year for the Reds. (Cincinnati also demoted Patterson to AAA at one point in 2008.) The Nationals and the Reds are the bottom of the barrel in the National League, so it doesn’t look good for another team to make an offer before the season starts.

Cubs fans don’t have the fondest memories of Patterson. In six seasons with the Cubs, the former 1st-round pick never lived up to expectations. He was frequently praised as being “gifted with tools”, but lacked the drive to utilize those tools to their fullest.
