Former Cincinnati Red Sean Casey Retires

In an off-season that has been slowed by economic fears, retirement has taken precedence over player movement in the last week.  Baseball bid good riddance to Jeff Kent earlier this week, and now Sean Casey has followed Kent into life after baseball.

Sean Casey was a well-liked first baseman everywhere he stopped in his career including Cincinnati, Pittsburgh, Detroit, and finally Boston.  Casey finished his career with a very respectable .302 average.

According to MLB Trade Rumors (via WEEI.com), Casey will be moving into a role with the MLB network.  That should be a good fit for the talkative 34 year-old.
