Baseball Has a New Top Nerd

Over the last few years, there have been some players who have publicly acknowledged that they enjoy and use analytics to help themselves on the field. Zack Greinke, Brandon McCarthy, and Glen Perkins are some of the more notable players who have embraced nerd stats, and guys like Craig Breslow — with his molecular biophysics degree from Yale — buck the stereotype of the typical...

Dodgers Pitching Depth Begins to Erode

Over the last few years, the Dodgers have made it pretty clear that, when it comes to pitching, they’re willing to take some health risks in order to get talent upside. To that end, they’ve signed pitchers like Scott Kazmir, Brett Anderson, Brandon McCarthy, and Brandon Beachy as free agents, all of whom have put up very good performances at times, but all of whom have had significant...

Let’s Please Ignore Brandon McCarthy’s Stat Line Entirely, Please

Brandon McCarthy made four starts for the 2015 Dodgers. They were… well, confusing. In 23 innings, he had a 29/4 K/BB, which is damn near elite. He threw harder than he’d ever thrown before, averaging 94.3 MPH after years of being in the 92 MPH range. He also gave up a ludicrous amount of homers, nine of them, and that led to a brutal 5.87 ERA. Though the Dodgers won all four...
