Pittsburgh Pirates hitting coach Jay Bell thinks OF Andrew McCutchen has yet to hit his peak as a ballplayer. "I'm talking about, when you feel yourself getting a little out of control, controlling the game internally," Bell said. "It's about: 'Don't let anything affect your approach to the game.' I saw it with Barry. I saw it with (Albert) Pujols. The mental side of the game is the part that separates players. If you don't figure out that part of it, you don't become the player you want to become. But with (McCutchen), it's only a matter of time."
