Here is the MLB.com Gameday
The Bucs finally packed up and headed north…but they have to spend two days on the wrong side of the state before returning to PNC Park. Tonight is the first of two exhibition games with the Phillies. The game is on Phillies’ TV as well as the Fan.
Pittsburgh Pirates vs. Philadelphia Phillies Time: 7:05 pm, Citizens Bank Park Weather: Windy, 50 TV: CSN Follow Phillies Nation on TwitterWe’re almost to the regular season. But for a few more nights, we have to put up with meaningless baseball in the form of two who-cares games against the Pirates at Citizens Bank Park.

Part six in the hastily completed loosely affiliated compendium of posts you can refer to as the WHYGAVS Season Preview. Photoshop work by bwzimmerman.Neal Huntington has done good things for the Pirates on more than one front, but one aspect in which he's repeatedly struggled as GM is in adding established talent to the Pirates over the off-season via the free agent market....
1. Casey McGehee
The Pirates obtained Casey McGehee from Milwaukee in a January trade for reliever Jose Veras ostensibly to be the backup at first base and third base. However, considering the Pirates' options at first base and third base, McGehee could be in line for plenty of playing time.

But the reason for this blog was never to make money, it was as a creative outlet for reasonable sports discourse, and the start of baseball season still gets me very fired-up and in need of that outlet…
I only got to one part of my Phillies preview, the...
Pirates' corner infielder Casey McGehee got off to a slow start in Grapefruit League play, but is heating up at the plate as spring training draws to a close. McGehee is coming off a disappointing season in 2011, but he led the 2010 Fielder-Braun-Hart Brewers in RBI. McGehee told PiratesDugout.com's George Von Benko that he hopes to be a big contributor in Pittsburgh.
Freddy Galvis hit a tiebreaking RBI triple in the seventh inning, Jimmy Rollins drove in two runs and the Philadelphia Phillies beat the Pittsburgh Pirates 4-3 Monday night in their first of two exhibition games back home.
With Chase Utley and Ryan Howard out of the lineup, the Phillies have tried several different ways to try and replace their Nos. 3-4 hitters. Rollins, batting...
