Cubbie blogger (and Deadspin) calls out Brandon McCarthy, C.J. Wilson

Over at Bleed Cubbie Blue, Al has a post up ripping Brandon McCarthy and C.J. Wilson over their MySpace pages, suggesting that they are racists, saying that Ozzie Guillen "may have been right when he recently ripped McCarthy for his attitude when he was a member of the White Sox," based on McCarthy's MySpace page, and claiming that McCarthy "talks a big game, but doesn't seem to back it up with performance."

The subject apparently came up here, on the comments in the game day thread, including a hope expressed that Wilson is suspended.

I'm not entirely sure what Al is referring to on there, although that may be because it is taking forever for my computer to load McCarthy's MySpace page.

However, I'm not entirely sure how what he has on there (at least, based on what I could see) lends any credence to Ozzie Guillen's complaints, and I know that management and the media have been extremely complimentary of McCarthy's attitude since he joined the Rangers. And saying that McCarthy can't perform because of a 5 run outing in an early March spring performance seems silly, to me.

I'm just baffled by this whole thing. If someone wants to check this out and tell me what the issue is, I'd be appreciative.

And I know that at least one of the folks Al is taking issue with has posted on here before, so if he would like to weigh in, that would be great, as well.
