In 2014 during his age-30 season, Brandon McCarthy finally broke out. The guy with the 4.05 ERA and 1.28 WHIP broke out? As we delve into his statistics you’ll see that 2014 was by far the most effective year of his career despite what the final numbers say.
As we all know the Diamondbacks sold low on McCarthy this past season, netting only the lowly Vidal Nuno in return. Nuno...
During Farhan Zaidi’s press conference discussing the Brandon McCarthy signing, the Dodgers designated Brian Wilson for assignment to make room for McCarthy on the 40-man roster.
This is certainly a move some have, for lack of a better term, fantasized about but thought it was a pipe dream of sorts. Then we remember this isn’t Ned Colletti’s front office anymore.
When the Los Angeles Dodgers traded Dan Haren to the Miami Marlins, I was concerned about the teams’ sense of humor.

Last week, pitcher Brandon McCarthy signed with the Los Angeles Dodgers in a move that will net him $48 million over the next four years.

Nevertheless, McCarthy carved out some time, though very little, to update his Twitter avatar, which had showed him wearing Yankees' pinstripes. Here it is after the MS Paint update:
Brandon McCarthy is a better pitcher then he is an artist.
The free-agent pitcher reportedly agreed to a four-year, $48 million deal with the Los Angeles Dodgers that was finalized Monday, ESPN’s Jerry Crasnick reports, citing league sources. But that left his Twitter avatar in a weird spot.
McCarthy couldn’t keep up the image of him in a New York Yankees uniform, so he wasted...
Durability can be a difficult thing to prove, but it can be an easier thing to demonstrate. And teams are fond of players they can count on, which is one of the reasons why Nick Markakis got four guaranteed years while the Mariners sold a relatively cheap Michael Saunders. Francisco Liriano has a history of […]
If reports are true, I cannot blame the Yankees for not matching the four-year offer Brandon McCarthy accepted last night from the Los Angeles Dodgers. McCarthy deserves, at-best, a three-year deal and, realistically, nothing more than a two-year deal. I also cannot blame McCarthy for going where the money is.

Mere minutes after my last post about the trade of Andrew Heaney to the Angels for Howie Kendrick, the Los Angeles Dodgers had another domino fall late on Wednesday night as they announced the signing of pitcher Brandon McCarthy to a four year, $48 million deal.
The right-hander struggled in Arizona to begin the 2014 season, the final year of a two...
