Thoughts on McCucheon?

Postby stumpak » Mon Jul 14, 2008 11:06 am

What is everyone's take on this guy so far in AAA? Everything is looking good except for a rather abysmal SB/CS ratio. It seems almost certain that he will be up in Sept (Nady will probably get traded and break the OF log-jam), unless the Pirates decide they don't want to start the arbitration clock running.

Anyway, and thoughts on how is AAA season is panning out and the implications for how highly rated he should be based on this would be much appreciated.

I like McCutchen a lot. He's actually on my AAA radar reports. McCutchen began the season on fire, where he was hiting over .300. Lately, his average has dipped to the .280s, but I still think that McCutchen will be able to hit at the big league level. I'm also impressed with his power this year, which will give him even more fantasy impact.
Jody, Jody Davis. Hits 'em high and far. Jody, Jody Davis. He's a superstar. Holy Cow!!!!

He's not going anywhere until the Pirates get rid of Bay or Nady.
