Mostly do to the fact that noone can match his value now so wait until they can and have an allstar CF until then. Believe me im with you in trading him eventually though

However, I disagree with you a little bit in that NH will listen to offers.  It will also depend on the success of Tabata, Marte, Presley and Hernandez for the Pirates to really get serious about trading him.  If even one of those guys falter, you don’t trade McCutchen.  That is a very realistic probability

I don’t see him being traded anyway.

There will be plenty of contending teams who would kill for a CF of his caliber.  The simple fact that it keeps getting brought up if he could be traded to NH, maybe there is fire behind that smoke?  About about the Nationals trading for McCutchen, we get Rendon and Purke back.  Rendon could play 1st next season and would fit nicely into our line-up.  Purke will be a nice addition to Cole and Taillon in a couple of years.  If we needed to sweeten the pot a little bit, throw in Lincoln and move on from him.

I think he is well worth 6 years, $51.5 mil with a 7th year as a Club Option or Vesting Option.  Can you get their attention to that priority?  I have heard that Andrew’s camp is not wanting to talk about his first two FA years – that’s the GM’s job – to make things happen.  This is the best prospect through our system for at least the last 15 years and we are stuck?
