larue is not a good defensive catcher. he throws a lot of guys out, and that's about it. he doesn't call strong games, he has trouble with a lot of the basic requirements of most catchers. i actually prefer to see valentin in there. and that's not saying much.

yeah, yes...

I would hope the Pirates aren't stupid enough to take on Casey. He makes way too much money for us...and Lord knows we'd ask him to take a "home-town discount" to do it anyway.

Besides, we've already thrown it in and have Brad Eldred starting at 1B - probably for the rest of the year. ;-D

What I think is funny is that when Hal Morris quit, CIN replaced him with his absolute statistical twin: Casey -- a .300 hitter with middle infielder power.

At the end of 2004, the 2 had the exact same lifetime average: .304.

You don't see that too often.

Where are all the people who extolled Casey as a bargain in the draft before the season here at the Cafe? Good thing I didn't follow the herd.

Grady Sizemore will have more value than Jason Bay regardless of draft position

Aramis Ramirez in 155 G will hit over .300 40 HR 110 RBIs

Brian McCann will have more value than Jorge Posada regardless of draft position

Someone at the cafe predicted that Casey would be better than Ortiz lol.

If Casey hits so many doubles, why is his OPS so low? I was one of those that thought his 2004 power would be duplicated. I was wrong and he's returned to his norm. I don't think he has much trade value and the Reds are stuck with him. :~(

I would be very happy if this happened...

A rumored three-way trade with the Mets, Rangers and Reds was making the rounds yesterday that would purportedly bring Soriano and first baseman Sean Casey to the Mets, but an official with one of the clubs said that won't materialize.

The Mets would never consider this IMO. Casey brings less power to 1B than Mientkiewicz does. They're looking for more power.
