Editorial: The Winter Meetings are days away.  According to pretty much every insider Andrew McCutchen most likely will dealt at the meetings.  Could the Los Angeles Dodgers be a fit?

Toward the end of the Pittsburgh Pirates season, many started to question if it would be Andrew McCutchen‘s final season in Pittsburgh.  Many believe that Andrew McCutchen is disgruntled here in Pittsburgh, and that it would benefit both sides to split ways.  From the Pirates side it makes sense.  They can trade him while he still has relatively high value, regardless of him having a down season.  They can also acquire a nice package of players back.   The package would include some who could contribute in 2017, and it would include some prospects.

The Los Angeles Dodgers are always in the thick of things every off-season.  The Dodgers notoriously spend money every time they have are given a chance.  Why would things be any different this off-season as they try to keep up with the Cubs as the National Leagues ‘ top team? One of the biggest issues is the little production they received from their outfield.  Andrew McCutchen would no doubt boost their outfield production over the next two season.  The Dodgers simply need a more productive and consistent bat coming from their outfield.  Andrew McCutchen would not only provide that, but also just simply the allure of another star player in the L.A. market.
