Player Profile #172: Brandon McCarthy | SP | LAD

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...

Dodgers DFA Brian Wilson, make Brandon McCarthy official

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. “This was...

Los Angeles Dodgers sign two former A’s pitchers

When the Los Angeles Dodgers traded Dan Haren to the Miami Marlins, I was concerned about the teams’ sense of humor. Haren (@ithrow88) is a great follow on Twitter, despite only having 45 career tweets. His best, this one: Haren Pitching at Coors Field #ScaryStoriesIn5Words — dan haren (@ithrow88) October 31, 2014 Self-depreciating humor is the best humor, and Haren mastered...

Brandon McCarthy Flawlessly Photoshops Himself Into A Dodgers Jersey

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. McCarthy must have been incredibly excited about the prospect of wearing a Dodgers uniform. Instead of waiting, McCarthy decided to “photoshop” a picture of himself so that he’d be wearing Article found on: Next Impulse Sports

Brandon McCarthy uses MS Paint to update Twitter avatar for Dodgers

Starting pitcher Brandon McCarthy signed with the Los Angeles Dodgers during a wave of hot stove action last week and probably one of his next orders of business is finding a home in a new city. 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: It's...

Brandon McCarthy Photoshops Twitter Avatar After Signing With Dodgers (Photo)

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...

Dodgers Bet On Brandon McCarthy’s Shoulder

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 […]

Brandon McCarthy Signs With Yankees West

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. Actually, the phrase "where the money is" is a bit misleading.  The Yankees...

Dodgers Continue Busy Day With Brandon McCarthy Signing

View image | 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...

Dodgers close to signing Brandon McCarthy to four-year deal

Somebody needs to tell Andrew Friedman to switch to decaf. The hyperactive day of Dodger transactions continues with Los Angeles reportedly now on the verge of signing starting pitcher Brandon McCarthy. Sources: #Dodgers close to four-year deal with free-agent RHP Brandon McCarthy. — Ken Rosenthal (@Ken_Rosenthal) December 11, 2014 After their still not yet complete trades...
