cutch 350 club seats behind home plate

Cutch With Hilarious Response to Tickets Request

I can’t imagine the kind of things that athletes see on their Twitter. The majority of the stuff they see goes without mention as they simply don’t have time to respond to everything. In this instance, Andrew McCutchen had a great response for someone looking for “club seats behind home plate.” Can you make my batting avg. .350 by tomorrow? https://t.co/3lsERJ0alr — andrew mccutchen (@TheCUTCH22) May 23, 2016 In order…

What’s Eating Andrew McCutchen?

Cutch had a slow start to the 2015 season. Eventually he got things figured it out and got rolling as Cutch normally does. 2015 wasn’t quite up to the standards of his previous seasons, but a .889 OPS from your center fielder is nothing to sneeze at. Coming into the 2016 season Cutch assured everyone that the lingering knee issue was in the past and he looked forward to getting…

Pirates – Reds Preview

The Pirates offense has produced 119 runs and a .294 average in April. Hurdle’s approach of getting plenty of rest and stressing on base percentage is paying huge dividends early on. Only four Pirates have played in every single game. Josh Harrison is one of those players and he is extremely hot as of late. He leads the team with a .333 batting average and also has produced 13 RBI….

John Jaso Could be Blocking Josh Bell – And That’s OK

For years and years the Pirates have not had very good production out of the 1B position, hovering around replacement level. Suddenly the Pirates have a strong current option at 1B as well as the future option in place, nearly ready to take over.

Going into Monday night’s game at Coors Fields, whether they admit it or not, the Pirates had to be feeling a little queasy about the pitching situation they were taking into the game. With a taxed bullpen, the Pirates had Jeff Locke on the hill at the high altitude Coors Field. If you’ve watched Locke closely, instead of just blindly hating everything about him, then you have probably noticed that…

Cutch Homers, 7 Scoreless from Niese as Bucs Roll

Andrew McCutchen finally gets his first bomb of the 2016 season. What did Cutch think about after hitting the homer and heading back to the dugout? “Honestly, for real, ‘About time,’” McCutchen said. “How many balls have I hit on the barrel that I just missed? Honestly, if I hit half of those balls, I’ve got eight home runs. “I know that’s the game. That’s baseball. That happens. You just…
