Andrew McCutchen Named NL Player of the Month

  • And yet, in the middle of a pennant race, he is given a day off. Not blaming Cutch, but I wonder where Hurdle’s head is at some times. And I am a Hurdle fan.

    • Totally agree. It makes no sense. I remember in either ’11 or ’12 he did the exact same thing-I think it was late in August in Milwaukee, he sat Cutch in a huge series so he could have back to back days off. I know they are not robots but nothing drains the energy from a team like sitting your best player. Had they won the first two I could go with it, but this was uninspired decision by Hurdle.

  • Another MVP type year and he started off very slowly this year.
