    Why so down on Brandon McCarthy? He has a 2.38 FIP, .345 Bapip, and he’s suddenly tossing 50% GB’s. Sure, the 2.6% HR/FB will catch up to him but the Bapip should even out a bit as well. The 6 K/9 isn’t great, but the 1 BB/9 definitely is.

    He’s showing great control, and over tossing over 80% Fastballs and curves, which are his best pitches.

    Lack of run support? Injury risk? I’m curious

    I don’t like him this week because he’s facing Texas and a suddenly potent Kansas City offense.

    It’s not that I don’t like him going forward, I just think he has a tough draw this week.
