McCutchen developing into the real deal

I'm kind of a big deal. I'm a mover and a shaker, and when I talk, people listen. For instance, when I mentioned in an Out of the Box column on Sunday that Andrew McCutchen was inexplicably owned in just 35 percent of ESPN leagues, a number that should be higher, it immediately got things moving.

By that night, McCutchen's ownership was down to 34 percent, despite the fact that he had hit three homers the night before.

That number did bump up to 37 percent this morning as teams set their lineups for the week, but it's still low. Over the last 30 days, McCutchen has been the 12th-ranked outfielder according to our Player Rater.
