Cutch Signs Long Term Deal

| March 5, 2012 | 1 Comment

News worth staying up late for on a Sunday night, Pirates All Star centerfielder Andrew McCutchen just signed a 6 year, $51.5 million deal to remain with the Pirates at least through the 2017 season, plus a club option for the 2018 season at a realistic $14.75 million.

The importance of this signing cannot be understated, as getting this done sends a message to fans and other players around the league that this Pirates are finally committed to putting a winning product on the field.  Now with two thirds of it’s outfield settled for the next 6 to 8 years, after Jose Tabata signed the 6 year deal with 3 club options last season, the Pirates can turn to other areas of focus for development.

All those people who joke around and ask how much longer until Cutch is a Yankee are going to have to come up with some new material.

Cutch will be in Black and Gold for a long time.  And that, fellow Bucco fans, is great news tonight.

Let’s Go Bucs!
