Sometimes it pays to wake up early in the morning. Today was one of those days. I woke up to see that the Pirates have agreed to a 6 year extension with Andrew McCutchen. There's even a team option for the 7th year. This could keep Cutch in Pittsburgh through 2018. The deal is very similiar to Justin Upton and Jay Bruce's deals received prior to last season. Upton, Cutch, and Bruce were all high school draft picks of one of the most talent drafts in recent memory (2005).
I'm so excited to hear that things are really looking up for the Pittsburgh Pirates. The Pirates are playing the Orioles tonight in a Spring Training game, but I'm going to watch it on the MLB Network at midnight.
LET'S GO BUCS!
To celebrate my excitement here's 2 relic cards of Cutch I got from 2012 Topps.
And here's me getting closer to my 2005 Topps Rainbow of Cutch. a red refractor numbered 5/25.
