Why Aren't the Mets Considering Obtaining Andrew McCutchen?
An MVP only 3 years ago and while he had an off-season last year, his 2nd half was pretty good and for the right 'ML-ready' players he could be available. Then too, if McCutchen has a comeback year (he's only 30 so the chances are more likely that he will) he would provide excellent protection for Cespedes in the lineup. And he gives a mostly (outside of Jose Reyes) slow Mets offense much-needed speed. With 36yo Curtis Granderson slated to start in CF next year and Juan Lagares serving as his backup, Andrew McCutchen would certainly be an upgrade.
