Andrew McCutchen is familiar with MLB's wild-card play-in game.
He's been on the losing end of it twice.
And on the winning end of it once -- the Pittsburgh Pirates' first postseason appearance in 21 years when Johnny Cueto famously, and literally, dropped the ball at PNC Park in 2013.
The Pirates' announced trade last week of five-time All-Star Andrew McCutchen to the San Francisco Giants led to more than the predictable blowback from fans. Jason Kauffman of Ross started a Change.org petition asking Major League Baseball to force Pirates owner Bob Nutting to sell the team.
