cool. How much was it again!
Not a bad move considering he was going to reach his incentives anyway.
I think this quashes just about every "Trade Casey" idea, at least in the interim.
Those cheap &^##%$. Oh, wait. Those generous $%&^#@$. ;)
captain casey :gac:
Add me to the positive list... :gac:
It may be another sign that the Keras thing is truthfully in the plans. I always felt that if they dumped the plan (for wahtever reason), plan B was to move Casey and have Jr or Dunn at 1b.
I just hated to picture this team without Casey on it.
A great move that makes quite a statement! :gac:
Wait, what's the "Keras thing" again?Quote:

You know, John Keras, the guy running for president. They're trying him out to see if he can play the hot corner next year until EE comes up. Then after Keras has a good year next year, they're going to trade him because they won't be able to afford him. Damn taxes on the wealthy.Quote:

Doing this is good PR in the sense tha it makes it look like they WANTED him bak. I'm not saying they don't, just that they really had no choice, so doing this is the best way to handle it.
