Sean Casey weighs in on Strasburg, Carindals’ offense, Randy Johnson
MLB Network analyst Sean Casey joined the show to talk about the big playoff stories and more.
Casey weighed in on the Nationals. He thinks they made a big mistake with how they handled Stephen Strasburg, and he said if he was the star pitcher, he would have fought to play.
Casey had interesting comments on the St. Louis Cardinals. He said that they’re actually better offensively this season without Albert Pujols and Lance Berkman. Casey gives a lot of credit to Carlos Beltran.
Casey said the toughest pitcher he ever faced was Randy Johnson. “That first at-bat against him … I was scared to death,” Casey said. “That at-bat took away my manhood.”
Casey said that when he was facing Mariano Rivera, he just knew he wasn’t going to get to the cutter. “What’s so unbelievable, he’s the best closer ever with one pitch,” Casey said.
