What a week Andrew McCutchen had.
“The Son of God died for our sins so that we may have the opportunity to be in His kingdom one day,” Andrew McCutchen
The center fielder for the Pittsburgh Pirates went 7-21 with six hits and five home runs in only seven days. He drove in nine RBIs and posted a .286 average.
On Sunday in San Diego, he blasted three home runs and went 3-3 at the plate. This was the third time the veteran outfielder had a multi-homer game. He is definitely in the zone.
He has had a star-studded career thus far. He has been selected to five All-Star teams. In 2013, he won the National League MVP Award, and in 2015, he received the Roberto Clemente Award. The latter is an honor given to the most humanitarian person in the MLB. It was a double honor because Clemente is a legend in Pittsburgh.
With all that production, he is still front and center in the trade talks. He is 30 and coming off his worst season offensively. He also had an un-Cutch-like defensive year in 2016 and was moved from center to right field at the start of this season.
“Keeping His commandments is important. We should always try to hold them up and be true to Him in everything we do.” Andrew McCutchen
He had been a mainstay in center field since 2009, but the Pirates opted to try Sterling Marte in the middle instead.
