Re: Are the playoffs still a crapshoot when you're THIS good?

I'm still hoping that McCutchen pulls a Heyward and says, "You know what... this winning thing would be easier if I played for the other team." yeah he might do that when he becomes a free agent. before the 2019 season. at which point he will be 32 years old. You say that as if it were an...
