NOTHING. WILL. EVER. WAKE. UP. THE. NUTTING. EXCUSERS.
You really think most of them don't already know?
They already know.
You are right. As much as I've critiqued McCutchen for not playing well in the postseason, I still respect him as a man, player, and especially for what he's done for the Pittsburgh community.
I was really disappointed to see how quickly fans of the front office turned on him last year before he ever got traded. It's like they knew it was coming, so they wanted to start greasing the wheels early, so that their rush to defend management appeared more natural when Cutch was dumped.
It's despicable. Fans are falling on their collective swords for a small group of men- Nutting in particular- who have gone out of their way to show that they clearly do not give a shit about them.
