It's getting harder and harder to see Casey's upside after 3 down years since his great '99 season, but i still believe in the big lug. Baby kissing aside, he is still a gamer who puts it all on the line, and has come up big in the clutch when healthy. My prediction is that Casey will rebound very nicely after resting/repairing his bum shoulder this offseason to the tune of .315 20hrs 40 2b's and 110rbis hitting in the sixth spot of a potentially formidable offense. Add a healthy Jr and his 40+hr bat, continued improvement from Dunn and Kearns, a full season of the 2nd half Aaron Boone, along with an improved pitching staff, and this team could be considered a division favorite for 2003.
