Oh. yes, Bill, I'm sure no one who participated and started those updates ever had the intention of poking fun at Casey.
Perhaps you didn't like the trade of Branyan for Broussard but where was Broussard going to play? He surely wasn't going to knock Casey out of the lineup since Sean had signed that long term deal. If anyone thinks the Reds would have benched Casey in favor of Broussard they are dreaming. Broussard was either going to sit on the bench and spot start or play in AAA. You and others may not have liked it or agreed with it but unless Casey had been injured for a significant amount of time it wasn't going to happen.
Let Casey's backers have their fun just like they let Ben's backers have their's.
