Spring training stats don’t matter at all, but that doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy it when some of the game’s best players absolutely murder baseballs in exhibition games, and Andrew McCutchen just crushed this dinky ass curveball into the parking lot. Last month, we covered McCutchen’s comments, saying that he wants to spend the rest of his career in a Pittsburgh Pirates uniform. The Pirates response to that was that they’ll discuss a contract extension with him “at an appropriate time” AKA we have you under team control through 2018, so let’s see where we’re at once you’re coming up on free agency, because now ain’t that time. Well, he’s not showing any signs of slowing down, so the Pirates better get off their cheap asses and pay this guy before he changes his mind about wanting to spend the rest of his career there.
PS – I’d love to get Goose Gossage’s thoughts on Andrew McCutchen pimping this home run down the line. Guy probably smashed his TV and flipped over his coffee table.
