Casey only hit into 10 double plays this year in 397 at-bats, which figures into 2.5% of his at-bats. Compared to the ML leaders in GIDP, which are Tejada (4.3%, 28 DPs), V. Martinez (4.7%, 27 DPs), M. Young (3.9%, 27 DPs), T. Glaus (4.6%, 25 DPs), and P. Kernoko (4.4%, 25 DPs), Casey falls in the middle of the league.
I just get tired of hearing this argument because it is all based on the one season where Casey hit into 27 DPs. All of his other seasons, he was closer to the league average.
