Re: Could the Reds have possibly gotten more for Sean Casey and Wily Mo Pena?
Casey's numbers in 2005
Overbay's numbers in 2005
Casey will make $8.5 mil in 2006
Overbay will make $2.25 mil in 2006
Casey will turn 32 this year
Overbay just turned 29
Casey netted Dave Williams and cash
Lyle Overbay netted Gabe Gross, Zach Jackson and David Bush
So I think it's safe to say that the Reds got much less for Casey than they should have. Or you could say that the Brewers committed highway robbery of the Blue Jays. The truth is probably somewhere in the middle.
