If you have the opportunity to get Mccutch off waivers, you fucking do it.  I know he is not a MVP anymore, but that is a seasoned bat that could easily help the lineup.  Also picking him up prevents any other playoff team from picking him up.

  ...And the fact Tito won’t ever move Kipnis means that is likely a dead option anyway. 

If I have any criticism of Tito at all, it's this...after Kipnis' dismal season at the plate and his inconsistency in the field (eg last night's debacle in the 9th), you'd think he'd at least sit him for few games and let Gonzalez get some AB's--he sure couldn't be any worse!

I'm still stunned that he finally gave up on Tomlin. That meatball machine had more lives than a cat.

I may have to rethink this...E4 in the 1st

Apparently not, he cleared, which means no one wanted to pay the $3M left on his contract for the rest of the year and took the chance that no one else wanted to pay it.  Now SF will have to eat some of the salary if they want to trade him.
