No, but it does make you easy prey for good K pitchers. Over 162, maybe it translates to a handful of losses, but this team cannot afford a handful of losses.
I wasn't against moving Casey if the return was good young pitching. Last year's GIDP were IMO an aberration in his career, and I expect he'll rebound from that this year. But guys that get on base at a .380+ clip AND hit .320+ are a good balance for a team that has Dunn, Pena and LaRue. JMO.
