Enjoying Casey McGehee...for now

If you have read my stuff for a while, you know that I am a sucker for the comeback story. I love the improbable when a guy falls out of baseball only to come back a year or more later and have some success. There has been Vogelsong in the past and this year the Sizemore story in Boston. Another one that might not be as much in the news is what Casey McGehee is doing down in Miami...

Buy or Sell: Opening Week Surprises

We’re only a week into the season and, as usual, a bunch of guys have come out of fantasy obscurity to make notable impressions over the first 5 or 6 games.  Many of these guys may be just smoke and mirrors and will disappear back into the ether over the next couple weeks, but some of them could be the breakout stars that help proactive managers win fantasy leagues.Keep in mind...

Marlins feeling good after taking season-opening series from Rockies

MIAMI -- Though it's a long season in its very early stages, the Miami Marlins have already avoided trends that troubled them during a 100-loss season. In an 8-5 comeback victory over the Colorado Rockies on Thursday afternoon, the Marlins (3-1) secured the series win. It took them until the last series of April -- ninth of the season -- to accomplish that feat in 2013. Through...

"I liken it to hitting behind Prince...

2014 Fantasy Baseball: The Casey McGehee Story

Jeff Roberson / AP Baseball is a game of failure. I hate to be so pessimistic this early on in the season, but when you think about the game itself, it is predicated on failure. After all, in what other sport could you meet your goal 30 percent of the time and be considered an all-star? However, there is always the value of looking at life on the other side of the coin.

McGehee Trade: By The Numbers

When the trade deadline came and went yesterday the Yankees remained relatively quiet. However, the Yankees did fill one need with the under-the-radar acquisition of third basemen Casey McGehee from the Pittsburgh Pirates for reliever Chad Qualls. McGehee, 29, fills the roll of a back-up infielder that can play both first and third base. McGehee comes in at the perfect time Alex...

Traded to Yankees, McGehee shaves off beard

Traded to the Yankees, Casey McGehee decided to shave his beard in private. No televised grooming, like Jose Reyes had when his dreadlocks were shorn on the MLB Network last winter. ''Reyes might be able to pull it off. I don't think they want to watch a chubby white guy shave his beard off,'' McGehee said Wednesday after reporting to New York. The 29-year-old...

Casey McGehee pulled from game with mild groin strain

McGehee has a mild left groin strain #Pirates — Michael Waterloo (@MichaelWaterloo) July 8, 2012 Hopefully it doesn’t force Casey McGehee to miss any time. If you are going to have a “mild” injury, I guess the best time to do that is with a 10-0 lead in the last game before the All-Star Break. McGehee came up limping after drilling a two-run single into the North Side Notch...

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...
