The local media and Reds fans have been all over Austin Kearns for his struggles. (And yes, Kearns has struggled mightily, but this is about a double standard by the media and the Reds management.)

And yet, the “Mayor” has a lower OPS (.795-.716), less runs scored (15-13), less HR (5-1), less RBI (18-15), and less walks (12-11). Casey has more hits (41-26), doubles (10-7), total bases (54-48), and OBP (.335 – .333) but with 38 more ABs.

And let’s not forget that Casey’s chasing the ML record for grounding into DPs. (But at least he doesn’t strike out.)

Kearns has hit in the 4,5,6,&7 holes…yet Casey’s big, slow butt is cemented in the #3 hole, no matter how pathetic he is.

Is there a worse #3 hitter in baseball right now?

Does Sean Casey have pictures of Dave Miley with a Shetland Pony? What other possible explanation could there be?

    The Reds 3rd spots line is this for the season (before yestrdays game)


    casey gets off on his “counting stats” as in Casey leads the team in hits with 40.

    Newsflash!! Casey also leads the team in Outs and GIDP.

    Get to the grains of the data Reds annoucers and press, counting stats have faults that are too huge to not miss.

    This is getting old. Kearns is getting the shaft from the Reds. He’s one of my favorite players and he deserves better. Chad says he hopes for his sake he gets traded. I’m begining to feel the same way. I don’t want to trade him, but I want to see him succeed, and until he gets consistent PT that’s just not going to happen.
