    I'd do either trade in a heartbeat without thinking twice.

    Re: Sean Casey to Mets Rumor

    I'd trade Casey and wouldn't need Milledge or Petit to get it done. Milledge is another toolsy player who is ranked that high because of his potential - not because of his results so far. I'd like 2 of the following group: Juan Padilla, Gabriel Hernandez, Brian Bannister, Michael Devaney, all pitchers, and either Andy Wilson or Dante Brinkley. Wilson, a catcher is 24, has a .361 OBP and .574 SP with 12 HR in 197 AB this year; Brinkley, an OF, has a .493 OBP, .654 SP. Gabe Hernandez is 19 and putting up ridiculous numbers. Whether the Mets would do the deal or not???

    Actually, I'd do the deal for any 2 of the above players named.

    DanO has yet to show me he has the smarts to do something like trade Casey. Sorry to be a wet blanket as I'd really like to see it go through, but I'm not holding out any hope on him doing what this team needs.

    Again, I am baffled by all the negativity surrounding Sean Casey. What the heck has he done, or not done, that makes most Reds fans giddy about getting him off the team?

    1. High salary for this organization
    2. Decent trade value
    3. Lower OPS than Dunn, Pena, Griffey
    4. 5-6 years older than Dunn, Pena, Kearns
    5. 5 players for 4 positions
    6. Borrowed Ryan Freel's soap and didn't return it

    I am and have been one of Seans biggest supporters. But I think the front office sees him as more than a player. He's the face of the Reds, and tremendously popular with the fan base.

    Regardless, he makes more money than we can afford for his production.

    Don't forget Freel, Randa and Lopez. So lets see thats 6 of the 8 regulars who have a higher OPS than our #3 hitter.

    Casey also boasts 3 HR's and 28 RBI's from the 3 hole while having the best OBP leadoff hitter in the NL in front of him. At 8M+ and still having trade value he needs to go asap. The mayor routine is nice but it doesn't seem to be helping us win any more games.

    Re: Sean Casey to Mets Rumor

    I like casey a whole lot. If he gets traded, I will miss him and part of me will definately regret he's no longer a Red. I think if he comes to NYC either as a Met or Yankee, he will have public success that he could've never imagined and will be fiercely loved by NY.
    But his absence clears the logjam of the multi-outfielders better than any other scenario as I see it.
    Also, he is now apparently an advisor to John Allen and an important cog to the Red's front office. Therefore he's DEFINITELY got to go. Guilt by association.

    Help stamp out, eliminate, and do away with redundancy.

    Let the GM worry about that. All a fan should be concerned about is performance on the field, and Case gets it done.

    So trade a guy, just because you can get something in return? Hell, 80% of the Reds roster fits that bill.

    Again, at least 80% of the roster fits the bill. Why single out Casey?

    I don't even know what that means.

    Well, that's the first solid reason you've given me.
