McCutchen is a straight up BOSS. The Pirates being this good is alot of fun. Reds V Pirates for the rest of the year I hope!

Pirates will need to get some help offensively at the deadline. I know they've picked it up lately but Cutch just went down today (not sure how long he's out though) and everyone else is average/below average. Someone like Carlos Quentin could be a solid pickup for them, even with his injury history.

re: 2012 GIANTS...TROUT >

It remains to be seen for tomorrow, but McCutchen said he's fine and will not miss a start.

And yeah he's easily a top 5 guy I like to watch play this game. Not sure he can get NL MVP with Braun being Braun, but he should be in the discussion.

As for Pirates pitching, McDonald and Burnett have been really good. We know Burnett has had what it takes in the past, but this McDonald guy I'm not so sure about; watching him quite a few times he's been dominant in more than a few starts. He's been one of the best pitchers in the first half.

re: 2012 GIANTS...TROUT >

Alot of what McDonalds doing is legit. Over 8 K/9 and only 2.44 BB/9 along with a 2.96 FIP (top 10 in majors). He's been a bit fortunate on balls in play, but I wouldn't be surprised to see him sustain this kind of success the rest of the year.

Hopefully he does, my fantasy teams depend on it...

re: 2012 GIANTS...TROUT >

If he's still sub 3 ERA, that probably can't last but sub 3.5 seems pretty possible. His stuff seems good enough to sustain that K rate from what I've seen and as long as he keeps the walks down the homers he'll definitely start yielding won't be back breaking. Nothing worse than walking one or two and then BAM, next guy goes yard for a 3 run shot. Ok, a grand slam would be worse, but it's a figure of speech. So yeah, I agree he can be really good the second half.

Sandoval, Kemp and Posey are NL All-Star Starters? Are you kidding me? They need to get rid of the fan voting.

AJax was robbed. Granderson didn't deserve it over him.

notsureifsrs you homer. Grandy provides a lot of the power in the NY lineup and will contend for the HR crown this year.

re: 2012 GIANTS...TROUT >

Yeah how about the fact that Jacksons OPS is .945 while Grandersons is .857? Or the fact that Jackson has more than twice the WAR that Granderson has in 20 less games. Or that fact that his wRC+ and wOBA are much higher, and that he plays a better defense.

But no, I'm being a homer. gtfo fool. It's not like I'm suggesting Delmon Young makes the team.
