The "Mc" Effect:
The Pirates have traded Jose Veras
for Casey McGehee
. You cannot make this crap up.
I'm pretty sure Neal Huntington is my biggest fan or something. As if having four Mc's on the team wasn't ridiculous enough, he has gone out and acquired two more this offseason. Andrew McCutchen
, Nate McLouth
, Daniel McCutchen
, Michael McKenry
, James McDonald
, and now Casey McGehee. Seriously, this is getting scary.
As I type I am being swarmed with ridiculous McPuns on Twitter. When I came up with this idea there was only McCutchen and McLouth, and since then the Pirates have gone absolutely crazy adding every McPlayer they could to the roster.
There are 17 players in Major League Baseball that have last names that start with the letters "M-C". Six of those 17 players are now on the Pittsburgh Pirates. I should be on a PBS special or something.
Normally I'm very logical and statistical about baseball moves, and that will come later. For now, please excuse me while I revel in my mistaken genius.

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...

KDKA-TV sports anchor Bob Pompeani interviewed Pirates’ GM Neal Huntington to wrap up the Winter Meetings, and the questions he asked were direct to say the least. If you have 4 minutes, I’d strongly encourage you to follow the link above for...
