Casey McGehee is in the Best Shape of his Life

Feb 2, 2012, 4:12 PM EDT

Casey McGehee

From Bill Brink of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette:

Hearing [Casey] McGehee will enter spring training at 208 pounds, down from 231 at end of 2011, cut body fat in half.

Just a mere weight loss isn’t enough to qualify for BSOHL, but when you have a body fat cut too, that makes it rate, baby.

    ~Best body fat cut of his life

  2. lembeck4 - Feb 2, 2012 at 4:21 PM

    I’m considering assembling a fantasy team made up entirely of BSOHL guys, Casey McGehee looking like a 4th/5th rounder…yikes.

      I wish I could make my whole team Adam Dunns.

      From my comment on the roster post


      and the lineup

      CF Fowler
      RF Guitierrez
      ’3B’ Cabrera
      1B Teixera
      DH Alonzo
      LF Cespedes
      ‘SS’ Tejada
      ’2B’ Huff McGehee
      C Olivio

      That’s a terrible defense. My god. I hope we have a lot of fly ball pitchers. Also, I put Guitierrez in RF as he’s played more innings there than Fowler, and I think he has a better arm.

      S1: Garcia
      S2: Cecil
      S3: Hughes
      S4: Zambrano
      S5 Tillman

      yeah, that’s a lot of groundballs through the infield. Though with Hall coming off the bench, at least we’ll be versatile.

      Our defense is much better with McGehee rather than Huff. We still don’t have a 3B or a SS

        grrr, my html has left me…supposed to be a strikethrough on Huff

    Brett Cecil lost more weight than that and has yet to be featured by Craig,

    • El Bravo - Feb 2, 2012 at 4:27 PM

      What’s with Craig’s clear hatred of Cecil? I think he hates all things linked to Canada or something. Just ask him about Canadian whiskey…

      • okobojicat - Feb 2, 2012 at 4:35 PM

        That’s just because Craig has good taste in Whisky. Nothing to do with the origins.

      Craig feels threatened by our national animal, the beaver. In all fairness, he has every reason to feel a touch insecure. Since his national animal is the Bald Eagle, and it’d be up against a Rodent of Unusual Size, it is not inconceivable that his bird may have not studied his Agrippa enough to feel secure in the arena of National Animal Mortal Kombat. And our beaver was just born badass.

        Those words….I do not think they mean what you think they mean.

      • cur68 - Feb 2, 2012 at 7:52 PM

        Am I going MAD or did the word “think” just escape your keyboard?

    I liked Casey a lot as a Brewer and hope he finds his stroke again in Pitt. Wish he would have decided to find the best shape of his life coming into last year though.

      Crap! I’m fully aware that McGehee is now with the Pirates. Sorry, guys.

      • El Bravo - Feb 2, 2012 at 5:01 PM

        Um, I think you mean he’s with “other”

  6. baseballisboring - Feb 2, 2012 at 5:33 PM

    I mean, I’d sure hope so after his 2011…

  7. smedley61 - Feb 3, 2012 at 11:03 PM

    Hmm… Wonder if that’s why the Cubs released him in the first place. Maybe he has motivation issues.
