As I joked on Twitter last night when Jon Anderson mentioned that ‘Cutch was 49-for-his-last-100, I was never even good enough at baseball video games to call this a video game line. 

UPDATE: A few things I’ve dug up while tweeting about McCutchen this morning: he has more total bases in his last 24 games (91) than Clint Barmes does all season (76). And inspired by this post from Baseball Musings, if you trace McCutchen’s hot streak back to when it was “pretty freaking hot” and not “supernova,” he’s hitting .403 between May 5th and today, which is 62 games and 266 plate appearances.  

Which is to say that we’re almost definitely witnessing one of the best stretches of offensive baseball in Pittsburgh Pirate history.

In 2005, I started a WHYGAVS instead of working on organic chemistry homework. Many years later, I've written about baseball and the Pirates for a number of sites all across the internet, but WHYGAVS is still my home. I still haven't finished that O-Chem homework, though.
