I like Clement, nothing against him, and I sooo like the Mercer call-up – just the right time too (We’ll see…) but I’ll still take McGehee over Clement. At least for this year.

His strike out to walk level at the major league level is so different than what he has done in AAA.
He also needs to be more than a statue at first. I think he is a player that needs to be promoted on what scouts see and not on his stats.

The surgery he had that caused him to miss 18 months basically regrew cartilage in his knees.

I think Casey, tho, sticks around, because they seem to like his offense?

Give KC something for Clint Robinson. Oh wait….not a fan of Barmes or Hurdle. Maybe 2 Clints are enough….lol

I wouldn’t bring him up though to rot. If he comes up, he should play full time, and there doesn’t seem to be a spot for him. Plus I think McGehee has enough service time they couldn’t outright him to AAA, so they’d eat his contract, something the Pirates don’t like to do, nor should they.
