More McCutch Love

Man, the accolades have been pouring in for CF Andrew McCutchen lately. It's nice to know that a Pirate can get noticed in this era. But here's something that proves his value, even to Sabermetric worshipers:

Andrew McCutchen produced more WAR than the entire Pittsburgh offense and defense, himself included. McCutch in 2010 had a 3.3 WAR; the Pirates had a 2.8 WAR. That's happened just once since 2004, when Jim Thome outdid the White Sox.

Joe Pawlikowski has the story at Fangraphs.
