Brewers trade Casey McGehee to the Pirates for Jose Veras...any thoughts?

I know that this isn't exactly a star studded trade, but I feel like the Brewers really did the right thing here. I'd say that getting ARam and a solid middle reliever could be called a good day...something to take a little focus away from the whole Braun issue, I guess.
Update: Best of luck to McGehee, by the way. He's a good guy, and he showed that he can be a really good ballplayer, mostly before last season...that one was hard to watch.
Update 2: Also, look for something else to be in the works for the Brewers at first base. Maybe even Carlos Pena, if they're willing to spend a little more.
