They’re close,  having been beaten in the last 2 world series’. If Cutch is truly unsignable, these types of rumors are going to become commonplace. The Pirates fell apart, not because they lost Bonds and Bonilla and such, but because they got no compensation for them and had no comparable players to take their place.

Stat wise, McCutchen should bring 3 good hitters, but scouting wise, he wouldn’t, he does have some holes in his game, although a fast outfielder, he does not always read the ball well off the bat, he does have at best and average throwing arm and remember in the month of Sept 2011, he hit below 150.

I think three top prospects has to be the number, if the trade happened now.

That is, if the Rangers want to sell their entire farm system for one player.
