I never had a problem with his attitude. I can see that he is trying and I can see that he cares, but I can also see that he's trying not to let it bother him too much, because if he gives it his best effort that's all he can do so why drive himself crazy.

And he has been somewhat unlucky. In fact last night the whole team was unlucky, because we hit a lot of atom balls.

He is displaying tendencies that go hand-in-hand with a poor attitude. He can say all the right things but it's actions that matter. His actions in CF saying "This is my spot" in a demonstrative way isn't a leader. Him leaving the clubhouse before he can be interviewed when things are tough aren't what leaders do.

I am a big Cutch fan but he has some serious issues to take care of right now.

If someone out there could get a picture from the MVP year and a picture from now and put side by side to compare his body. I would love to be able to do, but have no clue. Thanks.

Agree with leaving the clubhouse. I think the "This is my spot" thing is competitiveness coming out more than anything else.

There's some inevitable progression to come with his bat too. His BABIP is sitting at .230. That's extraordinarily low. His line drive percentage is super low though which is a bit concerning.

He just wears out the left side with grounders.
