According to the Chicago Tribune, they believe that Sean Casey would be the next best fit in Boston. According to sources who asked to remain anonymous, Tony Clark is closing in on a deal with the Giants, meaning the Red Sox will look for a different backup. Although they would like to have someone who can serve as a back up for Mike Lowell, Sean Casey has a bat that would definitely improve the Red Sox bench. In 143 games last season with the Tigers, Casey batted .296 with 4 HR and 54 RBI. Not very impressive for someone of his size, but the Red Sox should be able to sign him to a rather small contract.
