Terrible News While You Are Trying To Sleep

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!!!


  1. Hey remember my comment a couple days ago.....

    I predicted the future!

  2. I can't love this all any more! I cannot wait to see McCutchen Yankee cards on your blob. Can't. Wait.

    Screw Ellsbury. The Yankees should let McCutchen wear #22. What's the big deal? It's not like Ellsbury is rising from the dead this year. My prediction is he'll wear #26 or 29.

  3. Ach, he's definitely gone to the dark side....

  4. Saw the news before I went to bed last night and thought of you. What a bummer. I guess it's like when I had to see Gooden and Strawberry on the Yankees.

  5. Reminds me of when Roger Clemens went to the Yanks. You know it's part of the game, but it hurts nonetheless. My sympathies that you masterpiece collection must now be tainted.
