I love McCutchen, though. He could be a 20-30 guy if everything works out. The Pirates have pushed him aggressively up the ladder and he has held his own.

With his quick wrists, he has the ability to make adjustments in a millisecond and put good wood on ball. McCutchen just needs to cut down on the strikeouts and develop his power.
Here are four videos I shot of McCutchen out in the Arizona Fall League this past winter
