Off The Bench:
I know I write a lot about the Pittsburgh Pirates on this site but I find them really interesting. The Pirates have had a loosing record in each of the seasons I have been alive but they are starting to turn it around. Through savvy personnel decisions on a mostly small scale, Pittsburgh has positioned themselves, if a lot goes right, to actually win more than 81 games this season.
The most recent Pittsburgh acquisition, Casey Mcgehee, is a great decision by GM Neil Huntington. The Pirates were looking for an insurance policy for third basemen Pedro Alvarez, who struggled mightily last season. In Mcgehee, the Pirates got that and a everyday player who will hit in the middle of their order. Rumor has it, Alvarez will move to first to accommodate the new guy. This is a good idea, it allows four men, Alvarez, Garrett Jones, Jose Tabata, and recent addition Nate McLouth to fill three spots, 1st, right and left, and lets manager Clint Hurdle play the hot hand. Mcgehee’s big bat will li...

AROUND THE WEB
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...
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. 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...
29 year old C.McGehee could be on trade market with Ramirez signing
With the recent signing of 3B free agent Aramis Ramirez going to the Milwaukee Brewers for 3 years $36M (according to Brewers.com), the Brewers now former 3B Casey McGehee could be on the trading soon. 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...
The Pirates obtained third baseman Casey McGehee from the Milwaukee Brewers in exchange for relief pitcher Jose Veras, the Pirates announced Monday.
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...
