Found December 12, 2011 on Brewers Bar:
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. With Aramis Ramirez signing with the Brewers earlier in the day and the non-tender deadline at 11 p.m. Central, today seemed like a good bet to be McGehee's last with the Brewers one way or another.The Brewers made it sound like they'd be willing to move McGehee across the diamond if they signed Ramirez, but now it's pretty clear they were just trying to preserve any last shred of trade value he had. McGehee's bat never would have played well at first, although I don't doubt he'd be a decent defender there. Getting anything for McGehee is a plus considering his future was in doubt. Getting a useful pitcher in Jose Veras back is actually a pretty big bonus. Veras was a non-tender candidate himself in Pittsburgh, a year after he was non-tendered by Florida. It's not that he&#...

Peace, McGehee!

In 2009, Casey McGehee surprised Brewers fans when he revealed himself to be a not-entirely-****** (and, at times, even good) guy at doing baseball while filling in for an injured Rickie Weeks and an OHMYGODSOTERRIBLE!!! Bill E. Hall at second and third base. He chased that partial season of partial OK-ness with a 23-home run, 104-RBI showing for the 2010 Ken Macha cyborg squad Brewers...

Casey McGehee is a Pirate

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...

Casey McGehee's Rough Year

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...

Casey McGehee Is Now Very Available

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...
