Judgement Day is upon us (Pirates fans). We knew the Cutch era was coming to a close after the career low season he just had. It was time to strike while the iron was still hot.
It appears as if the Patron Saint of Pittsburgh baseball is being shipped to D.C. (Though clubs haven’t confirmed.)
Where are my sources you ask, here you go:
Sources: Important distinction on Andrew McCutchen — Pirates aren’t sitting back, taking calls. Been the aggressors, offering him to teams.

Important to add to McCutchen trade talks: Sources say Pirates asking other teams about outfielders. Planning ahead in case they move him.

Cue Fleetwood Mac’s ‘Landslide,’ I can only imagine the fire storm some poor soul running the Pirates twitter account is going to see once this deal is done, I’m assuming a lot of four letter words will be included.
If he does go, let’s not cry because he was forced to walk the plank, let’s smile because he brought us out of Davey Jones Locker.
Here’s one of my all-time favorite Cutch Moments:
If he is traded there will be a tribute article we can all look at to remember the good times.
P.S. Cutch was better with dreads!
