BRANDON MCCARTHY RUMORS

Dodgers 7, Rockies 0: Right-handed Power, Also Left-handed Power

The Dodgers finished up an amazing homestand in explosive fashion, demolishing the Rockies 7-0. Brandon McCarthy looked a lot more like the McCarthy the front office was expecting when they signed him today. He allowed no home runs and pitched six innings, striking out six and walking two. He looked a bit inefficient, especially at first, but settled in nicely after the first two...

The Almost-Amazing Dodger Pitching Staff

Just a quick weekend post. The Dodgers are currently 7-3, tied for the lead in the NL west. They’ve won five games in a row and have been hitting like expected. Still, the pitching staff, particularly the starters, have seemed uneven. Brandon McCarthy survived a four homer start, and Clayton Kershaw gave up two last night. By ERA-, the Dodgers have been 6% worse than the league...

Padres @ Dodgers April 8, 2015: Brandon McCarthy’s Debut

If you’re freaking out over last night’s bullpen implosion, know two things: 1) yes, the bullpen without Kenley Jansen is thin and scary, and 2) if you were expecting to have nothing but 100% perfect, then your expectations were sorely miscalibrated. Of course the bullpen was going to blow a game. Obviously. Padres Dodgers 7:10 p.m. Los Angeles...

Masahiro Tanaka Abandons the Fastball

A few years ago, Brandon McCarthy threw out a question that baseball Twitter scrambled to research: how often do Opening Day starting pitchers throw a first-pitch non-fastball? Suggested is that first-pitch fastballs, here, are extremely common and extremely predictable, and the results fell in line. It wasn’t clear there had been any first-pitch non-fastballs, and […]

Brandon McCarthy & Molly Knight had a insightful Twitter convo while you were sleeping

Besides his pitching, Brandon McCarthy also has value of another sort, which is his entertaining Twitter account and just generally being more accessible than most professional athletes. Late last night, McCarthy displayed the value of that accessibility clearer than ever by engaging journalist Molly Knight in an elongated conversation about the athlete/media dynamic. It’s lengthy...

WATCH: Brandon McCarthy throws immaculate inning

New York Yankees P Brandon McCarthy etched his name into the record books on Wednesday night. He pitched an immaculate inning in the seventh frame of the team’s matchup against the Tampa Bay Rays—striking out the side in just nine pitches. Wil Myers, Nick Franklin and Matt Joyce all fell victim to a great sequence of pitches from the Yankees right-hander. McCarthy is the fifth...

Brandon McCarthy's perfect 'Seinfeld' joke about number

The change of scenery certainly hasn’t affected Brandon McCarthy’s sense of humor. The right-handed pitcher was traded from the Arizona Diamondbacks to the New York Yankees on Sunday, but he’s hit a couple of snags with the Bronx Bombers before he’s even trotted out to the mound in pinstripes. First, it was the scruff. Much to his wife’s delight, McCarthy had to shave because...

Why is Brandon McCarthy's wife so happy he was dealt to Yanks?

The New York Yankees picked up Brandon McCarthy from the Arizona Diamondbacks Sunday to help out their injured pitching staff and no one could have been happier than the pitcher’s wife Amanda. Surely, Mrs. McCarthy is going to miss the friends she made while in Phoenix, but she’s more excited about what her husband will be leaving behind. And you can give the assist to the Yankees...

Diamondbacks trade Brandon McCarthy to Yankees

The dismantling of the Arizona Diamondbacks has taken another step forward, as pitcher Brandon McCarthy has been dealt to the New York Yankees. Check that, deal is done: McCarthy to #Yankees. — Ken Rosenthal (@Ken_Rosenthal) July 6, 2014 McCarthy has an unsightly 5.01 ERA this season, his second in the desert. However, that ERA masks a tremendous 4.65 strikeout to walk ratio that...
