Ok, I've been silent on the matter long enough. there is no "o" in McCutchen's last name.
It's a pretty rampant mistake on this board. If we're going to be the better, smarter, higher-road team, we should at least spell correctly
I hate that he's showing so poorly and inciting hate with this series. He's traditionally anything but a thug in any sense of the word -- stand-up, even-tempered, a leader, all-around good guy. Never shown any predilection toward anger or violence whatsoever that I can remember. And a helluva ballplayer. He's young and he's bearing the brunt of the pressure on that team and he's never dealt with anything like this before, and he's not handling it well, which is a mistake a lot of young people make. I hope he doesn't have people turn against him forever.
On the other hand, a lot of other guys in his situation might have been a lot more hot-headed. He did let it get to him on the field though.
