    Sean Casey suspended for 3 games.

    In the Ray-Red Sox melee. I always knew he was a brawler.

    NEW YORK (AP)—A day after the Boston Red Sox and Tampa Bay Rays tangled, Major League Baseball struck back: Eight suspensions totaling 38 games.

    Boston outfielder Coco Crisp and Tampa Bay pitcher James Shields were the hardest hit Friday, the result of their fight turning into a wild, bench-clearing brawl at Fenway Park.

    Three Red Sox were suspended: Crisp for seven games, pitcher Jon Lester for five games and first baseman Sean Casey for three games.

    This isn't the first time Casey's been tossed from a game; he was ejected a few weeks ago in Seattle for hugging a male fan in row 18.

    That was the brawl where Dunn was quoted that if Lieberthal hadn't tackled him from behind, he probably would have been in jail for what he wanted to do to Silva.

    Great brawl.

    Who is the Phillies' player grappling (hugging?) with Tim Foli? Must love his glove... enough to keep it on his left hand while in the middle of a brawl. Dude, drop the glove and have both hands available while fighting.
    Small market fan... always hoping, but never expecting.

    There is no such thing as a pitching prospect.

    IIRC, Foli had ahold of the pitcher, Carlos Silva, and held him until Casey ronnie lotted Mr. Silva to the ground.

    Sean Casey: He’s everywhere

    By Hal McCoy | Friday, June 13, 2008, 05:19 PM
    What do you think?

    Has anybody anywhere at any time at any place seen Sean Casey depressed?

    “I’m in the lineup tonight,” he said. “If this game is rained out I’ll be depressed.”

    Impossible.

    Casey spent the entire pre-game afternoon Friday touring Great American Ball Park and saying hello to everybody. As he walked into the park, he stopped at Gate 3 and posed for a picture with two security people.

    My ribs still hurt from the press box fall I took a couple of weeks ago, but they had been getting better - until Casey saw me. His bear hug was enough to crack three more ribs, but it’s worth it to see him.

    Casey, the world’s all-time nice guy, was suspended three games for his part in last week’s Boston-Tampa Bay brawl and they wanted him to serve it this weekend.

    “Oh, no,” he said. “Not the Cincinnati series. I’m appealing.” And he did and he won’t have to serve any suspension time until his hearing.

    “I’ve only been suspended twice and both times I was defending teammates,” he said. “The other was Dunner (Adam Dunn). Philadelphia’s Carlos Silva hit him in 2003 and he rushed the mound. But he hesitated and (catcher) Mike Lieberthal caught him from behind and clipped him. I had to protect him.”

    Casey was defending outfielder Coco Crisp, who had charged the mound to get at Tampa Bay pitcher James Shields on June 5.

    Most of the Red Sox are wearing t-shirts passed out by Casey. On the front is, “Woooooooo,” something pro wrestler Rick Flair shouts. On the back is, “Diamonds Are Forever,” and “alcalde,” which is Spanish for The Mayor.

    Casey is hitting .372 but because he only plays first base he doesn’t play that much, although he DH’s and there is no DH in this series with the Reds.

    During spring training, somebody asked him if he could play outfield in an emergency and Casey said, “Yeah, if the emergency was that the whole city is burning down.”

    Of playing for the Red Sox, Casey said, “Man, this is a different world. I see why they call it Red Sox Nation. It truly is. And they’ll be here in Cincinnati in full force. They’re everywhere.”

    Casey was talking about some of his former managers in Cincinnati and told a funny incident about Dave Miley.

    “He came up to me in the dugout one game and said, “Should I take out the pitcher? I gotta take him out right now, right?’” said Casey. “I told him, ‘How do I know, I’m just the first baseman.”
