Nobody ever accused Milwaukee Brewers GM Doug Melvin of being slow to the trigger.
Hours after signing Aramis Ramirez to be the Brewers' third baseman for the next three years, Melvin traded the incumbent at third, Casey McGehee, to the Pirates in exchange for reliever Jose Veras, according to the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel's Tom Haudricourt. The move seemingly clears the way for Mat Gamel to be the Brewers' everyday first baseman next season unless the team can find a way to re-sign Prince Fielder.

Well that didn’t take long. Mere hours after signing Aramis Ramirez to man the keystone for the next three seasons, the Milwaukee Brewers traded former third baseman Casey McGehee to the Pittsburgh Pirates for Jose Veras. While McGehee exceeded expectations with the Brewers initially — he slumped badly last season — and was eventually replaced by Jerry Hairston Jr. Will a change...
This probably shouldn't be as much of a surprise as it was, but the Brewers capped off a busy day by trading Casey McGehee to the Pittsburgh Pirates for reliever Jose Veras.

This could be a blessing in disguise for Detroit Tigers fans that wanted us to sign Ramirez, if we can jump...
Casey McGehee is a Brewer. We have always hated Casey McGehee. Casey McGehee is a Pirate. We have always loved Casey McGehee. When the Pirates picked up Casey McGehee last night, my initial instinct was to remember that how awful he was in 2011 and how overrated I thought he was in 2010. Being overrated doesn't mean that a player isn't useful, of course (see: Neil Walker...

Hours after agreeing with Aramis Ramirez on a contract to play third base, the Brewers traded Casey McGehee to the Pirates for right-handed reliever Jose Veras.
The Brewers spent their remaining pile of money on Aramis Ramirez today, locking him into a three year, $36ish million deal to take over at third base for the club. While most people will see this move as evidence that the Brewers are out on Prince Fielder, I think there’s another Seattle tie-in here that should be more aggressively pursued. In part one of my offseason plan post...
