WEEI: Sean Casey to Retire

Red Sox first baseman Sean Casey will reportedly retire after 12 major league seasons. Casey plans to join the MLB Network in a “role that has not been defined yet.”

Casey finishes his career with a .302 batting average, 130 HRs, and 735 RBIs in 1,405 career games. He hit a career-high 25 HRs in 1999 and 24 HRs in 2004, but later in his career completely lost his power stroke. He seemed to always be a .300 hitter though, which is why its perplexing for me that he retired so young (34).

Last season for the Red Sox, Casey was a backup for the first time in his major league career, and embraced the role mostly because of his all-around good demeanor. He was nicknamed “The Mayor” for his positive clubhouse attitude. He finished with a .322 batting average in 69 games with zero HRs and 17 RBIs.
