Just heard this on Cold Pizza and though I would pass it along. No mention of what the actual deal was

Glad to see Casey get a chance at the playoffs. I think I will have to root for the Tigers now.
You know, unless they play the reds in the world series. :)

Big ballpark should help Casey. His power to the gaps should translate into a lot of doubles. Wonder how the reunion with D'Meathook will go?

It will be GREAT to see him in the post season. He will also be a great leader for them. AWESOME NEWS. :clap:

Word is they optioned Shelton to AAA to make room for Casey.

Brian Rogers > Dave Williams

In return the Pirates received right-hander Brian Rogers, not among Detroit's top 30 prospects entering the season. The 24 year-old has worked in relief at Double A this year, posting a 2.39 ERA, 0.98 WHIP, and 9.7 K/9. Rogers, a product of Georgia Southern University, was an 11th round pick in 2003. He switched to relief last year and has put up good numbers since.

Wow....Shelton put up some good numbers. From the Tigers' website...


"Shelton saw action in 102 games for the Tigers this season, batting .277 (98x354) with 16 home runs and 45 RBI."

Hmm, sending Shelton back down doesn't make a lot of sense to me. The guy's obviously been pretty good this year, although he cooled off a lot since his incredible start, but I'd at least keep him with the big club.

I am really happy for Sean. I think that park suits him. It'll be fun getting to watch him in the playoffs.

Chris Shelton was 9 for his last 21 and gets sent packing? That is very very strange IMO. Good for Sean though, I wish him all the best.

I will always be an instant fan of whatever team Casey plays for (unless it's the Cubs). Great to see him get a chance in the postseason. Hope all of you Shelton owners in fantasy baseball sold high on him....I did :)

I was thrilled to see this. Casey played so hard all of those years for us, and only sniffed the playoffs once in 99. And the first year he's gone, we contend, so I'm excited he gets a chance in Detroit with a young up and coming team. Thank you Detroit for rescuing The Mayor from the depths of baseball hell.

yeah, good for Sean. Shelton going down is surprising, he obviously has better HR numbers than any year for Casey but '03. But Casey will give em good ABs with few Ks and enough doubles to keep the fans happy as long as he can stay away from the infamous 6-4-3 that plagued his last few years in cincy.

Shelton has cooled waaaaaaaaaay down from that insanely hot start, but I'm still surprised he got sent down.

Shelton had 16 xbh May-July combined. That is sad. But Casey isn't exactly producing power numbers either.

The Reds sent Germano down also........;)

Yeah, he did, for the first couple months and then he dropped into a big black hole for the rest of the time. His average was so high in the beginning that it wasn't as noticable how far he was dropping off the radar later on.... except to those of us who have him on our fantasy team (I had him on both of mine; what a disappointment he became).

Unless absolutely necessary, I haven't played him in weeks.

:) Word out of Detroit was that Jim Leyland was fed up with Shelton's play in the field and perceived lack of desire to get better at it. Any time you are replaced by Dmitri Young at any position for defensive purposes you might have an issue. Looks like a wake up call for Shelton, who probably projects as a DH more than at any position. If you don't play defense, you don't play for Jim Leyland unless you are an incredible hitter (i.e., Bobby Bonilla, early '90's)

I am still trying to figure out why the Tigers wanted Casey, but I am glad for Sean.

Sean Casey .296/.377/.408 (.294/.333/.353 in his last 7)
Chris Shelton .277/.343/.476 (.381/.409/.429 is his last 7)

Wow. And Brandon Inge is still at 3rd.

Double wow.
