Andrew McCutchen to the Phillies still makes a world of sense (to me).
I’m on record: I want Andrew McCutchen in a Phillies uniform. Check out this article for all the reasons why.
But to keep things simple, if the Phillies can get a former MVP still in his prime, on a very team friendly contract, while not harming the future, sign me up.
I’ll shake things up from last time however, the Phils still need bullpen help, and could provide the Pirates with an MLB ready pitching prospect for that help along with McCutchen.
Potential Deal: Pirates send Andrew McCutchen and RP Tony Watson to Phillies for Cesar Hernandez, Aaron Altherr, Ricardo Pinto, and Ben Lively.
(Note: Lively and Pinto are more of examples than predictions. Regardless, I’d be willing to give up something of potential significance (not a top ten prospect however) in this scenario)
