By far my favorite move of the offseason, lol.
Damn, I love how bad he is. I was really looking forward to some more classics:
"Joey Votto is having an excellent season in both spots in the lineup, hitting third and playing first base"
"Drew Stubbs is a triple threat, power, speed, defense and baserunning"
"You know Chris the Reds are playing good defense despite the that throwing error from Cabrera and that passed ball by the catcher"
Subtract Keels, add Casey.
Good talent upgrade!
How is Kelch?
Kelch is fine.
I didn't like Keels either.
Now they need to add Dan Hoard. Hoard should be first in line for any future Reds broadcasting opening. He is one of the best, IMHO.

This is a good move. I wasn't sure how Keels would with baseball and I was amazed about how bad he was - he is good on radio, doing football and basketball, but baseball and TV did not mix.
Kelch will do fine and the addition of Casey appears to be a good move. Looking forward to it.
I enjoy listening to Jim Kelch, he does a fine job and has earned his stripes so to speak. Like many others have stated, Paul Keels was just bad. It's good to see a change made. Fox Sports experienced record high television ratings in 2010 and I'm sure are expecting more of the same in 2011 so hopefully the move will assist in that manner.
Does the Reds organization have control over who announces on television or does Fox Sports Ohio? I know the Reds organization has control over the radio announcers.
I guess thats our big offseason move we were waiting for.
ROLL TIDE ROLL!!
sean casey has been signed to do about 15 games this coming season. the mayor is back!
I grew up listening to Kelch do Louisville Redbirds games. Always thought he was very good.
Were all of you good at your new job duties the first few few times you performed them? Sheeesh
- I thought Keels did fairly well for being his first year. He is a super Reds fan also. I am glad he is still doing Buckeye games!
I like Kelch and it will be good to hear Casey's enthusiasm.
* Attended the 1990 and 2010 Reds Division clinchers *
Watched the 2012 Clincher on FOX.
*Bat Votto SECOND, please?*
I can't say one is more entertaining than the other. Seems like a lateral move to me.
