JD has some interesting observations about the recent trade of Sean Casey to the Pirates.

Meanwhile, Marc Lancaster has a glimpse into Casey’s emotional state right now.

No question that Casey is a great guy, and he’ll be missed. Unfortunately, trading him was precisely the correct thing to do for the future of this organization. (This is what you call mixed feelings.)

    While I liked Casey’s personality, I think he looked upon his role as team leader in terms of being everyone’s buddy. The team needs a leader who does not accept excuses for losing.

    Best of luck to Casey but the Reds are in better shape due to his trade.

    I still think we need to put Pena at 1B rather than Dunn.
