Please Trade Sean Casey!!!

Postby Havok1517 » Sat Dec 03, 2005 12:40 pm

First, second options
December 3
Boston Herald (scroll down): "There is support within the organization to deploy the combo of Alex Cora and rookie Dustin Pedroia at second base, while the Sox have explored trade talks for a few veteran first basemen, including Milwaukee’s Lyle Overbay and Cincinnati’s Sean Casey."

Plenty of items left on Red Sox's to-Do list
November 26
Boston Herald: "At first base, Milwaukee’s Lyle Overbay and Texas’ Adrian Gonzalez have been mentioned as trade possibilities, and so have Cincinnati’s Sean Casey, the Los Angeles Angels’ Darin Erstad and Arizona’s Chad Tracy. Travis Lee is also available on the free agent market. "

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Please trade him, then move Dunn to 1B and Pena to LF. Oh please, I'm gonna try and will this 1 to happen.

Sources told the Boston Herald that the Red Sox are having ongoing conversations with the Reds about Sean Casey.
That can't be good. A Casey acquisition would only make sense as a straight salary swap, with Matt Clement or David Wells going the other way. Even then, it'd be a bad idea. John Olerud was a better player than Casey last year, and Kevin Youkilis could be just as good or maybe better at first base. Dec. 3 - 1:26 am et


Trade Sean Casey...but do not include any of the following...Wily Mo Pena, Ken Griffey, Jr., Adam Dunn, or Austin Kearns. Thank You.

Sean Casey makes no sense for the Sox. They're trading Manny because he costs too much but they're going to get Casey who costs more per "fill in the blank" just because he carries a 1B mitt? They've seen that movie starring Kevin Millar and they're passing at less than half the price. They both s*cked last year after decent years in '03 and 04, and their 3 yr. avgs are almost identical. No way the Sox do this. It's just silly season reporting. :-t

Well, unlike Manny, Casey is a great club house presence. He is a far better hitter than Millar and would might excel at Fenway. But the Reds don't have room nor the money for him. Clement would be an upgrade from any of the pitchers besides Harang. Maybe they'll include Freel in a deal.

So is Millar....doesnt mean he is worth 8 mil to make everyone around him happy. At some pt, you have to perform on the field. And whose to say Manny is not a decent clubhouse prescence, I am sure he gets along with his teammates but has a personal agenda that is aimed at the Boston reporters (I have read that is the reason he is leaving - he gets no privacy in Boston). I dont think he was a distraction in the clubhouse or a cancer.

Sean Casey- Red Sox talking with the Reds about him...Cincy likes Bronson Arroyo and Kevin Youkilis, among others



Reds Consider Trading LaRue and Casey
December 4
Cincinnati Post (scroll down): "Plenty of teams are looking for catching help, and the arbitration-eligible LaRue could be an attractive bargaining chip for Cincinnati. Casey would appear less so, mainly because he'll be paid $8.5 million in 2006, the final year of his contract. If Casey is dealt, the Reds would be able to fill that hole internally by moving Dunn to first, but there is no in-house replacement for LaRue."

Reds first baseman Sean Casey, earning $8.5 million next season, might be easier to trade before the July 31 non-waiver deadline when his remaining salary will be lower. The Reds eventually could move center fielder Ken Griffey Jr. to first base.

Trade Casey now!!!!
