Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports that the Giants have agreed to acquire Andrew McCutchen from the Pirates, pending a review of medical records.
No word yet on the return package. The writing has been on the wall for quite some time now, but the Cutch Era is over in Pittsburgh. Coming off a disappointing season, the Giants made it a priority to pull off some impact moves this offseason. While they fell short in their efforts to land Giancarlo Stanton, they have now managed to acquire both McCutchen and Evan Longoria. McCutchen got off to a rough start last season, but he recovered with a .279/.363/.486 batting line to go along with 28 home runs and 88 RBI. He could be asked to play a corner outfield spot in San Francisco. The 31-year-old McCutchen is due to make $14.75 million in 2018 before hitting free agency.

Good for Cutch. He deserves to be with an organization that wants to win as much as he does.

Random Person: I’d say this is about as angry as Pittsburgh fans could possibly get.

No top prospects involved.

Why am I not surprised?

The Pirates were quick to make this move while everyone was distracted by the Jags fiasco.

How many days until Harrison is jettisoned? I give it 8 days.

OFFICIAL: The Pirates today acquired pitcher Kyle Crick, minor league OF Bryan Reynolds and $500,000 in international bonus pool space from the San Francisco Giants in exchange for Andrew McCutchen and cash considerations.

Too fucking funny. Anyone who actually buys a ticket to a Pirates game this year is exactly what PT Barnum had in mind.

I guarantee they WANT to win. They are just not going to pay for it.
