BTIA on McCarthy

New, comments

BTIA has a great analysis of Brandon McCarthy's past 18 months or so in Texas, and in particular, the chronology of problems and the public statements being made (particularly from Mark Connor) about McCarthy's issues...

I don't know why McCarthy has been the mess he's been since he got here, or who all is ultimately to blame...but I think there's no question the Ranger version of McCarthy hasn't been the ChiSox version of McCarthy (the one who was regarded as one of the best young pitching prospects in baseball).  And I think it is worth asking why that happened, and worth the organization spending a significant effort to determine how that mistake can be avoided in the future.
