I heard yesterday that we signed Sean Casey. To have someone of his talent come here as a potential platoon player and role filler is huge.
I’ve known Sean and competed against him for a long time. I think he’s gotten the best of me more than I on him.
I have never had him as a teamate until now but I can assure you this guy is pretty much one of the classiest and most respected players in all of baseball.
In addition to being as likable as anyone I’ve ever met, I’ve never heard anyone have anything to say other than what a fantastic teammate and person he and his wife are.
This is a huge piece, even though it might not appear so on the surface. Theo continues to show extraordinary ability to bring players here that most likely could play everyday somewhere else to fill vital and important roles on this club.
All in all a huge signing as much off the field and in the clubhouse, if not more so, than on the field.
Welcome to Sox Nation Sean!
P.S. Remind me to blog about the All Star story I have on Sean when I get a chance, incredibly funny and great insight into why he’s such a funny and great guy.
