No, The Dodgers Aren’t Being Cheap

I was looking at the mailbag questions — and I swear we’ll do another soon — and I came across this gem, which, what: I read all the time about the Dodger’s financial clout. Yet they don’t appear to use it. How much money since the GM change have the Dodgers spent on players minus what they have given/traded away. I would guess it’s not much. Jesse, if you’re reading...

Don’t Judge The Health Of The Dodger Rotation On Disabled List Trips

What’s the biggest potential weakness of the 2015 Dodgers? Everyone who just said “right-handed power” can go sit in the corner. Stop. Just stop it. That’s not it. That doesn’t matter. It is, probably without a ton of controversy, starting rotation depth. We’ve been over this a bunch of times. All five members of the 2015 rotation — Clayton Kershaw, Zack Greinke, Hyun...

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...

The Los Angeles Dodgers have signed right-handed pitcher Dustin McGowan, who joins Brandon McCarthy, Brett Anderson, Brandon Beachy, and others on the list of pitchers with checkered injury histories to join Los Angeles this off-season. McGowan, who turns 33 on March 24, has spent time as both a starter and a reliever in his seven-year career, but 70 of his 78 appearances over the...

Francisco Cervelli Could Be a Sleeper For the Pirates

Over the off-season, the Pittsburgh Pirates saw Russell Martin sign with the Toronto Blue Jays. Before that happened, they traded Justin Wilson to the New York Yankees, getting Francisco Cervelli back in return. By the looks of things, Cervelli will be the starting catcher for the Pirates during the 2015 season. There are definitely things that make Cervelli an interesting catching...

Under the Greydar: Brandon McCarthy

The late rounds of fantasy baseball drafts are filled with players who have questions surrounding them. It's usually not too difficult to categorize these players, particularly in terms of starting pitching. There's the post-hype group (Trevor Bauer, Kevin Gausman, Tony Cingrani), the declining veteran tier (CC Sabathia, Dan Haren, Bartolo Colon), and the unproven prospect tier ...

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...

McCarthy and Dodgers finalize 4-year contract

LOS ANGELES (AP) Pitcher Brandon McCarthy and the Los Angeles Dodgers have finalized a four-year contract. The deal was agreed to last week at the winter meetings and announced Tuesday. A 31-year-old right-hander, McCarthy was 3-10 with a 5.01 ERA in 18 starts this year for Arizona, which traded him to the Yankees on July 6 for pitcher Vidal Nuno. McCarthy went 7-5 with a 2.89 ERA...

Intent on Spending All the Money, Dodgers Sign Brett Anderson

The Los Angeles Dodgers have added injury-prone starting pitcher Brett Anderson on a one-year, $10 million contract that could yield the veteran another $4 million in incentives. This comes on the heels of a whole host of moves by the new Dodgers front office during MLB’s winter meetings. The team added Jimmy Rollins, Howie Kendrick and Brandon McCarthy, among others, last week...

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...

Be very afraid of the revamped Los Angeles Dodgers

Just when we had gotten use to the new Los Angeles Dodgers and their bottomless, oft-used wallet, they’ve gone and changed it up once again. There was once a time where the Dodgers couldn’t say no to an expensive veteran and could give a contract extension to just about anyone on the roster. They were a good team, but not the elite team many had thought they could become. But...

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...
