The Pirates do indeed have a budding star in long haired Andrew McCutchen. He is that rare player: A good first round pick by the Pirates. And a day after drafting Gerrit Cole, McCutchen sent a “Wish you were here” message. Three hits in the game. He drove in the Pirates first run, scored the game tying run in the 10th and hit a 12th inning walk off shot.
Not a bad day at the office.
One thing I DO know. It is more than 1/3 of the way through the season and the Pirates are at .500.
Granted, not exactly Everest, but for a team that needs to change its culture it’s not a bad first step.
For what it is worth, the Pirates are only games back in the loss column for first place.
There are 102 games left to play. Is that enough to make up for 4 games?
Let’s hope they drafted some McCutchens.
