The MLB Network show Intentional Talk is hosted by Chris Rose and Kevin Millar. It’s hilarious. Andrew McCutchen joined the show on Thursday and other than one serious question that provided an interesting answer, Cutch showed off what Pittsburgh has been fortunate to see for nearly two years.
It was so good we didn’t want you guys to miss some of it, so here is a quick recap.
Cutch got some shit about his action figure.
I guess that’s why they call it an action figure. They put a few pounds on me, made my feet a little bigger.
Kevin (of course) asked about firing the ‘boys up in the dugout’ with the many different handshakes McCutchen has developed with his teammates.
We have five or six. I like the one with me and Cedeno. The one with Parrot too.
Chris asked McCutchen about making the headlines by saying he wanted to spend his entire career in Pittsburgh. He said, “A few people had to look at headline and wonder why?” Chris then asked McCutchen to enlighten America.
It’s kind of just one of those things. I mean. You know, some guys can relate. You know, when you’re just one of those homebred, homegrown guys and this is where you come from and this is who you were drafted by and came through the system with. You know you have some history with the team.
You just feel like you leaving and going somewhere else and trying to get acclimated with a new team and getting things together with other guys. I really love it here. I really love what we have going on. We have a great young group of guys. I can just feel the change coming.—Andrew McCutchen on Intentional Talk
As McCutchen was wrapping up his answer to the Pittsburgh for Life question Joel Hanrahan came behind him and without saying a word made us laugh.
Chris and Kevin asked Cutch if he saw Steve Pearce trying to make that ‘cool’ play a la Brandon Phillips. Of course Cutch said he did and some good natured fun ensued. Cutch said Matt Diaz asked Pearce to grab his glove the other day and Pearce threw it between his legs into the stands.
The segment closed with Cutch dancing to The Fresh Prince of Bel Air.
McCutchen exudes charisma all the way to his fingernails. It was a great few minutes of fun.
