This is a New Era advertisement being run across the internet, including right here on McCovey Chronicles. No big deal, right?
Why, it says that Andrew McCutchen is on the Giants. What a silly mistake!
Except I talked to a lawyer.
And he told me the following:
LAWYER: This is 100-percent legally binding.
McC: Just because it was on an advertisement?
LAWYER: Yes. Completely legally binding. Andrew McCutchen is legally on the Giants now.
LAWYER: This is completely correct and real.
There you have it, then. Andrew McCutchen is on the Giants, and he'll probably play center and bat third. This is a very, very important day for the franchise, and I'm happy to share it with you.
