Andrew McCutchen. Thoughts???

Postby wingman3110 » Mon Jun 08, 2009 11:06 pm

Any ideas/thoughts on this young fellow???

Hit a triple today and made it from home to 3rd in 10.5 seconds, I believe that is what I saw on Baseball Tonight.

Good but not great average, ok but not good power, good speed. He has value but I doubt he becomes a major star.

Strong Logic.

Any reasoning behind this blanket statement?

Just taking a shot, or are you keeping secret info from the rest of us so you can step on the rest of us in turn. :-?


Nice speed, decent average, not much pop since single A, he'll come back down to earth.

Strong logic? That's my opinion. I believe when someone asks for thoughts or ideas, they want opinions. Mine is of the notion that he will in fact come down to earth. I enjoy the sarcasm and would normally ignore it, but in this case, I'll humor you even though you, in fact, haven't contributed your own opinion.

His 2008 campaign was good, but not overly impressive. This season while better, hasn't been overly impressive either. In fact, before his last 10 games in which he "caught fire," he was hitting a rather pedestrian .278. With that being said, I just can't believe that he'll maintain a .280 batting average against major league pitchers let alone in the lead off spot in which he has been placed. He's got decent speed and a legitimate eye, other than that, I wouldn't expect a whole lot. He'll get on base at a decent clip and he might steal 15-20 bases the rest of the way but don't expect him to hit higher than .255-.260. That doesn't have a ton of value in most leagues.
