    Sean Casey to work 15 games as color guy for Reds in 2011

    Red Reporter did a very nice interview with Sean Casey. Check it out at the link below.

    Ken: Do you have any plans to try to manage or join a front office some day?

    SC: Actually I just signed on to do 15 games for the Reds this year as a color guy. [ed.: Yay!] Iíll get a chance to get in the booth and see how that goes. I think Iíll be doing the games from April 5 through April 7, and later some games in Pittsburgh and in Cincinnati. Weíre still figuring that out. I donít have any plans of getting back in the field. Will I someday? Maybe, but I canít see it happening any time soon.

    Awesome! Can't wait to hear the Mayor try his hand at color.

    Dear God. I love Casey and all but how many announcers do we need?

    Variety is the spice of life. I like the idea of "guest announcers". Keep it interesting.

    This is good. I see Casey as an enthusiastic, positive guy without an ego problem -- and he knows hitting. Works for me.

    He did a few Red Sox games when Remy was sick. He doesn't pause much.

    How cool would it be to see The Cowboy and Casey go at it-- add in Thom and the Bow-Tie Bandit and you've got a very nice quartet to run out there for TV and radio.

    Agreed. I think I'd rather listen to Sean Casey than Jeff Brantley.

    I saw Casey do a couple games for MLB network last season and honestly, he was pretty enjoyable. Seems like a win/win to me.

    He certainly has the gift of gab. I would think he would be at least entertaining if not very good.

    Casey has been a guest in the booth a handful of time over the past few years. During those spots he has been very good. But I do have my concerns about how well he will do over the course of an entire game. It should be interesting none the less.

    I like the Cowboy -- but Marty and the Mayor has a fun ring to it.

    I just hope he doesn't have alot of wires attached to him when he calls the game. With all that hugging he does it could end up being a tangled mess.
