    Default A reason to believe in Pittsburgh

    A reason to believe in Pittsburgh

    expert from Jerry Crasnick article:

    Atlanta manager Bobby Cox sat in the home dugout at Turner Field before Monday's season opener, puffed on a cigar and mixed in some general ball talk amid reminiscences about Mickey Mantle and Ted Williams. At one point, the conversation turned to the dynamic, young African-American outfielder who's making such a positive impression on fans, opponents and scouts throughout the National League.

    Yes, that Andrew McCutchen kid certainly can play.

    "He's an All-Star. This year, probably," Cox said. "Hitting. Running. Defense. Throwing. He's got it all. He catches the ball like Andruw Jones did when he was 19. You can't hit a ball [past him] out there. He's got lightning in that bat too."

    He made a couplle erratic throws last night. Also made a **** nice catch. But he's really not been much of a factor at all so far.

    i wouldnt say that, he is tied for the team lead in runs scored, and has 2 stolen bases. All solid contributions to this point. Also he has definitely taken away hits with his defense.

    Great article. It's obvious to anyone watching him play, that McCutchen is going to be a huge star in this game in years to come, the Pirates problem is going to be keeping him here in the face of intense interest from the big market teams, it's a virtually impossible situation for as long as our chronic losing streak continues. He would be huge trade bait at some point, though I don't myself go along with some people's logic that in order to be a better club, you deal away your best players.

    Good post- it is hard to believe that McCutchen will be here for very long.
