what is going on with brandon mccarthy?

Postby shutupandball » Thu May 01, 2014 10:42 pm

i was just browsing pitchers by xfip and noticed brandon mccarthy has been pretty damn good so far...
8.2 k/9, 2.17 bb/9, xfip 2.93... but i see his hr/fb is 26.9%, and his strand rate is only 60%... havent looked at his velocity or anything more in depth... but he might be a turnaround candidate right? what do u guys think?

I think his overall stats are being buoyed by his one huge game

If you want me to look at your team, post the team. Don't post a link to another site where the team is.
Have you given me all the info I need to judge your team? The number of teams in the league is a good start for the big overall questions.
Is your league H2H? Roto?
I don't know who's on your waivers. Don't just ask me who you should pick up. Give me names to choose from.
If you only have one team, post your team in your signature with the league parameters.
I don't know every single matchup for next week, so if you want me to choose a player for the following week and you think the matchups are important, tell me who they're facing.
