    I have my doubts that 33-year old Brandon McCarthy is ever going to be a reliable contributor.

    He's at an age where velocity starts declining, not even considering the new tendon he's breaking in. The 2014 velo was probably a blip, we'll have to wait and see, assuming he can even earn a rotation spot back.

    I actually like McCarthy and this format favours him since we don't use ERA, but let's not act like JFaS just stole an ace for Jonny Rickard's Red. The 2nd round pick might very well be the best asset in the trade.

    Upside vs. Upside. My upside is just older.

    Draft showed us that everything outside of the first round is basically worthless. He got a free McCarthy, IMO.

    McCarthy has no upside, we've seen the best of him. Maybe there's a chance he's still that good.
