Re: Wins comparison/Upcoming schedule comparison
The Pirates are hanging tough and look like the real deal to me. I haven't looked in the last week, but before that McCutcheon hadn't even really gotten going.
I'll go look now.
In the last 8 games, McCutcheon has raised his BA from .266 to .291 adding 2 HR's to give him 6 total, with 25 rbi. He's also stolen 5 bases in those 8 games and raised his OBP to .356. He's heating up. In fact, he was hitting .237 with an OBP of .297 on the first of May.
The real difference maker in the field is Starling Marte batting .310 and making things happen.
Pitching is solid and hanging with the Reds and Cards. Atleast their first 3 starters - Burnett, Locke, and Wandy Rod.
