Why Isn’t Andrew McCutchen On The New York Yankees Right Now?

The San Francisco Giants have placed Andrew McCutchen on waivers which means he has until August 31st to be traded to a team and still be eligible for their postseason roster. McCutchen is batting .255 with 14 home runs and 53 RBIs.

The New York Yankees not only need an outfielder, but they desperately need a bat in the lineup that scares opposing pitchers. The three faces of the franchise, Aaron Judge, Gary Sanchez and Didi Gregorius are all out with no set date on their return. In their place is Austin Romine, Neil Walker and Shane Robinson. That’s a disgusting lineup. Once Giancarlo Stanton and Miguel Andujar are up, the lineup falls off a cliff.

The Yankees need a spark in the clubhouse. They are fighting to keep their heads above water as the Oakland A’s, Seattle Mariners and Houston Astros are all battling to straight up knock the Yankees completely out of the playoffs altogether.

You know what would bring that spark?

Trading for a former National League MVP to play right field instead of Shane fucking Robinson. Seriously, how is McCutchen not on this roster right now? He’s on a one-year deal and the San Francisco Giants have punted on the season. There is no way you need to give up major prospects for him.

If the Yankees genuinely want to win the World Series then they need Andrew McCutchen in pinstripes and they need Shane Robinson back in the bleachers selling peanuts.

My god. The New York Yankees need Andrew McCutchen hitting walk-off homers and Milly Rocking in The Bronx.
