3 HRS IN ONE GAME BY A ROOKIE!!!!!!! (8-1-09)

McCutchen knocked 3 ding dongs tonight!

How many rookies have ever done that? And he could be moving into the Rookie of the Year discussion now.

Also, while the line today was fairly impressive, he's still only 210 AB into his ML career. His OPS is .830-ish, and if he keeps up a decent pace for the rest of the year and Rasmus keeps struggling, he'll have a shot at it. Though I personally like Wells at this point.

Great season for a rookie, but I think he may be a tad over rated AT THIS POINT:

He's batting .281 up until tonight with only 3 HRs and 9 SB

The steals are where he really needs to thrive to be a valuable fantasy player. They're obviously a rare commodity and I don't see him being a huge runs, HRs, RBIs, or really even BA contributor.

I think a good season in the future for him could be:

.285
15 HRs
65 RBIs
35 SBs?

I guess that makes him a slightly better Willy Taveras? (whom I guess is a quality player in some deep leagues)

3 home runs in one game is impossible.

Willy Taveras has EIGHT homers in over 2000 at-bats, McCutchen clearly has some pop. I don't see why he can't score 100 runs a year, he's their leadoff guy and has the wheels plus the green light to run as much as possible with their offense. McLouth managed 113 last year so it's possible. Runs/Steals are definitely where he's got to be an elite fantasy player and if he provides solid pop like 15 HRs, you basically described '08 Shane Victorino there and that's a 5th/6th rounder.
