Thoughts on McCutchen?

Postby mindspin311 » Thu Apr 25, 2013 7:33 am

Slow start? Reason to worry?

Some what slow start in the power and avg department but his speed is better than last year. I don't see anything to be worried about yet.

I thought it was a tad optimistic to expect a repeat of last year in BA, HR and did not like the SB success rate. Good to see that he's actually improved the base running. Should have some extra bags this year, but I think the HRs will be closer to 20 than 30 and I think the average will be closer to .280 than .320. A very useful player to have and in the upper tier, but probably not a Kemp/Braun/Trout off the charts dominating season.

You guys need to settle down. How many HR's did McClutchen have in April of 2012?

I think he's a value play right now, if you can trade for him.

I love McCutchen as much as anybody but the .327 average from last year is not repeatable. The guy is a lifetime .286 hitter in the minors. I'd be shocked if he gets to .300 this year... and he'll still be a great player. Just don't expect unreasonable things like last year's numbers. Power and speed will be good though.

Does he get to 30/100/30?

You just answered your own question of whether or not there is a reason to worry about McCutchen. There are very few players that have the potential of 30/100/30...I would not be worried about him. It's early, it's cold, he will be fine - 25/95/25/.285 is more reasonable at this point.
