Casey Will Return for WS

Pretty good news for the Tigers:

"My calf was 100 percent when that ball left his bat," Casey said after the Tigers clinching 6-3 victory Saturday in Game 4 of the American League Championship Series. "I am going to play in the World Series. You can put that in the bank."

Tigers athletic trainer Kevin Rand agrees, saying Casey most likely would be ready to play when the series opens next Saturday at Comerica Park.

Even though the Tigers won the three final ALCS games without Sean Casey, I'm still glad to see him back in the lineup. It just means more depth on the bench, something that could help the team very much in the future.
