Pittsburgh’s former MVP hasn’t had a terrible start to the 2015 season, but with a .228 average and a .310 on-base percentage, McCutchen isn’t getting on base nearly as much as in past seasons. After a hard line-out during Sunday’s game against the Cardinals, “Captain Cutch” decided to take matters into his own hands and exercise his batter’s box demons with a little dugout voodoo.


I’m not sure exactly what part of that ritual worked, but McCutchen laced a double in his next at-bat.

P.S. — “Fuck you Joboo. I do it myself.”
