I'd trade Casey but not because of Broussard. It would be to put Dunna at first and keep Encarnacion in the OF. I like the guy. I think I am in the minority but sorry, he's been the Reds biggest weapon this year and I don't think he's gonna suddenly fade away. That said, I'm still betting JB keeps Case and trades Juan.
I agree we need another pitcher but I am glad JB is running things - he may overprice players sometimes but at least we aren't trading Kearns or Dunn for Colon. Talk about a real "Colon-ectomy". We don't need pitching THAT bad.
As for Casey, I don't disagree with anyone that he could be replaced but I'm betting JB isn't gonna trade him. Period. Thats the dude making the deals - think he's gonna trade Casey after proclaiming for seasons this would be his greatest trade ever after Griffey's?
Not even Bowden spins around that quickly. Broussard gets traded this summer or next winter.
