Bruce does have a case, though I don't think he's having a better first half than some of his other years. Strikes me that he has actually now settled into his career norm at .830 OPS.
McCutchen isn't as dominant as he was last year, but he's helped by the fact that he is the only bonafide star on the team with the best record in baseball. He's also got a slight lead on Bruce in OPS and plays a more demanding defensive role. So I have no problem with McCutch over The Boss, even though both are worthy.
