C Wilson v. S. Casey

Postby Mile High Ballers » Tue Apr 18, 2006 4:28 pm

Is it likely, if C. Wilson still has the hot bat, when Casey comes back from the DL that Wilson still plays, perhaps in the Outfield?? Or does he get get relegated to pinching only? Anyone watch the Pirates or have any insights?? Thanks.

Craig Wilson should have been starting somewhere all along. If he continues to show his abilities while Casey is out, he should continue to start somewhere, Pittsburgh's outfield or otherwise -- the Pirates could move him for pitching and almost any lineup other than the Pirates' will further boost his value.

Imagine this flight of fantasy: Lowell continues to struggle, Youkilis moves back over to third, Clement is moved to Pittsburgh (also giving Papelbon a rotation spot), and the new starting first baseman for the Boston Red Sox: Craig Wilson. Imagine the potential. LOL. Yeah, its far-fetched, but this is FANTASY baseball, no?

That was a very real possibility...before the Wily Mo/Arroyo trade. I don't think it's likely now. In a perfect world, the Pirates would be able to trade Casey (since he's a free agent anyway after this year), but I don't think that's likely anymore, especially because of the injury.

I certainly hope that Wilson continues to get regular AB's. But honestly, a lot could happen w/ the Pirates in a 2 month period before Casey's back.
