Last night I was laying in bed getting ready to fall asleep when I got the MLB AtBat alert followed by an ESPN alert followed by several email alerts and text messages.
Terrible news broke late last night.
Andrew McCutchen was traded by the Giants to the Evil Empire, the New York Yankees.
It is bad enough that I won't be able to see Cutch with his name on his back anymore, but he won't even have his trademark 22 either.
The reason is because that number belongs to Jacoby Ellsbury who hasn't played a single game this season. It must be nice to offer a guy $153 million to be a bench player for 7 years.
Great job Yankees. You have killed my Cutch fandom.
At least I can watch a Yankees game and root for someone besides just Neil Walker now. Let's go former Bucs!!!
