ETA on any of those likely isn't this year but possible.
I think McCutcheon is another Cameron Maybin. I'm tired of thin guys who have "potential" for 20/20 getting overhyped.
McCutchen is not the same type of player as Maybin. Maybin has a huge strikeout rate, while McCutchen can make contact (39 K's in 219 ABs). If you want to use a waiver pick for someone for this year, then I think McCutchen is the short term pick. If you want to gamble on Price being available, then I would definitely wait it out for him. He looks like the real deal.
