    Not a bad move considering he was going to reach his incentives anyway.

    I think this quashes just about every "Trade Casey" idea, at least in the interim.

    It may be another sign that the Keras thing is truthfully in the plans. I always felt that if they dumped the plan (for wahtever reason), plan B was to move Casey and have Jr or Dunn at 1b.
    Nothing to see here. Please disperse.

    You know, John Keras, the guy running for president. They're trying him out to see if he can play the hot corner next year until EE comes up. Then after Keras has a good year next year, they're going to trade him because they won't be able to afford him. Damn taxes on the wealthy.

    I just hated to picture this team without Casey on it.

    A great move that makes quite a statement! :gac:

    I don't think this has anything to do with being a "sign" of anything. Let's not read too much into it. Casey was going to reach the incentives that automatically kicked in the extra year. Doing this is good PR in the sense tha it makes it look like they WANTED him bak. I'm not saying they don't, just that they really had no choice, so doing this is the best way to handle it.

    Bingo, take an inevitable and spin it into a positive.

    Smart business by the Reds on this one. Now market the guy for cripes sake. The Reds have to get over this stress-the-team-instead-of-the-players mentality and start taking greater advantage of guys like Casey.
