David Wright or Sean Casey

Postby red » Fri Jul 23, 2004 1:56 pm

For the rest of this year only. It's the hype machine at work, I know- but I have to ask the question.
Casey's having a career year; I'm betting he tails off, perhaps significantly in the second half.
Wright-- who knows? Big asset: he can steal bases. Not a big asset: never seen a major league pitch before two days ago.
If his minors numbers are indicative, a Miguyel Cabrera-like rookie year is about to be expected-- plus a few steals.
Which would you rather have?

Casey. Wright still needs to get some more experiance. Maybe next year, but for this year i'd take Casey.

Casey by far, Wright has potential and Casey will probably fade significantly but you can't take an inexperienced rookie for a proven guy who is having a career year.

Don't bank on him stealing a lot of bases in the majors. I would always favor the veteran over the new guy in his first stint. ;-D
Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey
