More coming later on the debut of Mr. McCutchen later but for now, McLouth fallout!
According to ESPN.com the players actually lit a candle in effigy of Nate McLouth:
On Thursday, at the clubhouse table where McLouth used to play cards with relievers Sean Burnett and Jesse Chavez, a candle bearing McLouth's uniform No. 13 was lit, along with a photo of him in uniform, the Post-Gazette reported. “We'll miss him,” Burnett said.
Wow. Players in the clubhouse lighting candels, playing taps, and singing dirges – this bodes well for the rest of the season!
