Short term I would go with Casey

he is on a tear.

I just read this on him:

The inferno that is Sean Casey just keeps rolling along. Is anyone else enjoying this as much as I am? For years, Casey has given new meaning to the term "oft-maligned", but Casey has come out blazing in 2004, battering pitchers to this level: 417/471/650. Casey is an interesting, Ben Grieve-like case, in that he has lost bits and pieces of every skill since entering his prime years, to the point that basically everyone agreed (except the Reds) that he was a sinkhole in the middle of their offense the past two seasons. The Reds, stubbornly continuing to bat him third just like my Diamond-Mind expansion team (well, at least they have better options), are now reaping some benefits - but are they temporary? It's always a strange case when a promising young player loses power in his mid-to-late 20's, so it stands to reason that that power could return after we've written it off. Casey has six doubles and two homers in his first 60 ABs, not blistering power numbers, but very solid. If someone said that Casey would hit 50 doubles and 15-20 homers, you'd probably say that with a .300 average and 60 walks thrown in he'd be pretty valuable. I think we all sometimes forget that that's what he was, and maybe that's what he'll be again. If so, it'd be a pretty good story. There's nothing to make anyone think that he can do that expect the fact that he did it a while back, and that's not predictive. You're going to have to go on your hunches here, I'd say, but if you're looking for my opinion, I'd say he is going to put up his best year since 2000 at the very least. -sdombroske
