    No, lets move on...if Dunn is to the 1st baseman then we need to play him, also Votto is going to be coming down the road soon (hopefully) so why block him?

    Well, if he's willing to sit on the bench and be more of a mentor and lefty off the bench, sure..... Its time to move on, Casey is a good player, but he really doesn't have a place on this team if Kearns and Pena do what they are capable of, and we have Dunn at first. Yeah, everybody loves Casey's personality, but its better for him to stay in Pittsburgh or go somewhere he can play at 1st every day. He can't play any other position, and who really wants a DH who has no power, so first is his one and only spot. I like Casey as much as anybody else, but he just doesn't fit.

    No thanks. Sean is by all accounts a great guy but the Reds have no place for him. He will also be 33 years old in mid-2007. The Reds really don't need to be looking at players that old, given how far away they are from contention.

    Back up 1B, insurance incase an OFer gets hurt, #1 pinch hitter option, late game defensive sub then sure, but only if he's cheap. It also depends on what he does in Pittsburgh next year.

    Absolutely not, I wouldn't want Sean Casey back in any role even if he signed at the league minimum. Everyone knows he's a good guy but his crybaby attitude brought down the ballclub when his so-called "leadership" it was needed the most. Like the whole ordeal when Danny Graves got released because his performance on the field sucked and he flipped off a fan. The Reds were a better ballclub without Danny Graves and Sean Casey is boo-hooing in the clubhouse bringing everyone else down. That's true leadership right there when you squak because one of your friends gets released when it makes your team better.

    only if you want to see the Reds accelerate their descent into being the Royals.

    Not everyone hated to see him go...as a ball player at least.

    If Sean came a callin next year, i'd advise the Reds to move on.
    Nothing to see here. Please disperse.

    The Reds need to move forward, they've moved backward for far too long.

    One of the big problems with this organization is the "Good Old Boy Network".
    My dad got to enjoy 3 Reds World Championships by the time he was my age. So far, I've only gotten to enjoy one. Step it up Redlegs!

    Only if he is the missing bench piece to a World Series run at the league minimum.
    And this one belongs to the Reds!
