    Padres Fans Reactions To Sean Casey Rumor

    Here is what Padres Fans are saying about a rumor of te Padres showing interest in Sean Casey. Big Donkey posted this rumor on the other board.

    "Postgame guys mentioned that trading for Casey is still fairly hot on the rumor mill."

    "Trading for another first baseman keeps Klesko in the outfield and Nady out of the lineup. Just like with the Snow rumor, it's a guy I wouldn't mind having but it seems kind of pointless."

    "Casey in exchange for what though? Nevin already vetoed a trade a couple years ago, so it's not likely he would go there now and he would be the only player that would make sense. Maybe the reds would be the third team in the trade and Ponson would be shipped off to the reds, they need pitching don't they?"

    Jesus, I pray that that's the deal. In fact, if it happens I might believe in DanO again. Not that I think Ponson is the answer, but he's more of an answer than prospects that may or may not work out.

    I'd do Casey straight up for Burroughs. You can them try to spin Burroughs somewhere this Winter or keep him as insurance if EdE turns out to be Willie Greene II (which I don't think he will be). Not sure the Padres would do this deal though unless the Reds kicked in some financial aid.

    It would be pointless to trade for another 3rd baseman. I don't know why you would send the message to Encarnacion that we don't fully trust his abilities, so we are bringing in a backup player "just in case." To me, when the Reds traded Randa today, that is showing that they think Edwin is ready and they put their trust in his ability to play at the Major League level. They have made that decision so they must stick by it and live with the consequences (good or bad). Besides, Encarnacion will go through some good and some bad times, you just have to ride it out and hope that the bad will be less numerous. Oh, and I do like the sound of Ponson, as long as you make Kearns teach him how to lose some weight!

    Anyone on the Padres, or anyone period? Because that's crazy. (Either way)

    I'd trade Casey first chance, any gm would.
    This is the time. The real Reds organization is back.

    Right now I would trade Casey for nothing. It would be the equivalent of trading Casey for Austin Kearns and a long-term deal for Adam Dunn.

    The '98 Padres went to the WS with Joyner playing 1b. The '90 Reds won with Morris; Wally and Hal were similar to Sean as hitters. Casey's not dragging the Red's offense down, they're leading the NL. Put Casey on a team with pitching and he'll make contact w/RISP, drive in runs and contribute to a playoff contender

    Just like in '99

    Dan O is dumb, probably worse than Bowden.

    He probably will trade Casey.

    just got done watching the fox california sports report and they brought up the casey to san diego trade rumor. i guess its up to the nevin trade to baltimore going through. that being said i don't think nevin will go.

    GM, to me it comes down to Trade Casey or Trade Dunn..and to me that's an easy choice.

    We still have 5 guys for 4 spots..trade Casey and we can move Dunn to 1st and have Pena and Kearns with JR in the outfield.
    Go Gators!

    The Reds would be better getting nothing than Ponson. He's horrible and makes 8.5 Million a year.
