Sean Casey, Redsox backup 1st base

This guy looks like he might be fun.

Boston Globe:

The Red Sox today agreed to one-year, $800,000 deal with lefthanded hitting first baseman Sean Casey, pending a physical.

Casey will serve primarily in a backup role to Red Sox first baseman Kevin Youkilis. Casey is known as "the mayor" around the major leagues because of his outgoing personality.

The Sox see th veteran Casey as someone who will embrace the backup role as well as be a great addition to the clubhouse.
