McGehee Gets Some ROY Love

Last year around this time, the Brewers picked a guy off of waivers that barely saw the field in the few weeks he was up with the Chicago Cubs organization. This year around this time, that guy earned himself mention in the National Rookie of the Year honors, coming in fifth place. Not too shabby for a guy we essentially stole from the Cubs.

As for the Rookie of the Year honors, that actually goes to Marlins outfielder Chris Coghlan, even though there's no doubt Andrew McCutchen is probably the better player. But Coghlan played great in the second half, and he gets the award. McGehee actually did get a first place vote though somehow, so that's something.

Oakland's Andrew Bailey won the award for the American League.

As for McGehee, the guy who allowed Milwaukee to cut Mike Lamb - remember him? - should be entering the 2010 season as the Brewers starting third basemen. But the stay could be short lived, as prospect Mat Gamel is sitting right behind him. I'm not sure if McGehee should be a sell high sort of player or if his production last year will turn out to be the norm, but I can't see both of these guys being on the roster past the trading deadline of next year. With all the help Milwaukee needs with pitching - both in the majors and minors - one of these guys could bring in some nice pull.

No matter what happens though, the story of Casey McGehee has been a pretty impressive one and I'm excited to see what happens here on out.
