Youkilis doesn't seem to make much sense. Is Cincy giving up on EE already?

The Pirates are looking for a first baseman and Pittsburgh-native Casey is a natural ticket-seller for the fan-starved Pirates...Reports out of Boston say the Red Sox have offered infielder Kevin Youkalis, a Cincinnati native, and pitcher Bronson Arryoyo (14-10, 4.51) for Casey.


I'm not sure, I don't see why they would. Edwin really had some bright spots last year and I like his future in GAM, plus he's a pretty good fielder. The Red Sox don't need Youkalis with Lowell. Maybe the reds will move him for some pitching once acquired, it's what I would do. If they move Casey and move Dunn to 1B, it'll make the team stronger and lower payroll.

Youk can play 1st but I think they should move Dunn there and attempt to trade Youk to a team like Pit, TB, LAD or some team in search of a 3B.

The Pirates are close to acquiring first baseman Sean Casey from the Reds for right-hander Dave Williams, FOXSports.com has learned.

The acquisition of Casey would be another example of a low-revenue team adding payroll. In the past, the Pirates have been a team that dumped salary, but Casey would represent a significant increase. He is set to earn $8.5 million in 2006.
Casey, who began his career with the Indians, spent the last eight seasons in Cincinnati. Last year, he hit .312 — the fifth time in eight full big-league seasons he has cracked the .300 mark.


I don't like this move as much as the one with the Red Sox, but if it means us keeping Griffey, Kearns, Dunn, & Pena I'm okay with it since it also lowers our payroll.

I would imagine that the potential trade with the Red Sox (for Youkilis, Arroyo) never actually existed as it seemed to make little to no sense for the Red Sox. They probably inquired, but those names were likely mere conjecture on the part of journalists.

that, or they wanted Dunn in the deal as well.


I would much rather get Van B or Kip Wells than Williams.

Rotoworld...

If this goes down, then it's safe to assume the reports of the Red Sox offering Bronson Arroyo and/or Kevin Youkilis were false. As we figured anyway. Casey is making $8.5 million next year, so Williams, a bottom-of-the-rotation lefty, is about what he's worth. Dec. 6 - 6:02 pm et

Makes a little more sense.
