Brandon McCarthy is both a fine pitcher and a funny guy, which is why it just plain sucks to see him back on the DL with another stress reaction in his shoulder.
Thousands of years after the rapture the new civilization will uncover what we leave behind and I’ll still be ‘on the DL’. #pitypartyforone
McCarthy previously missed big chunks of 2007, 2009 and 2010 with stress fractures in his shoulder, and his 2008 was marred by elbow problems. The A’s are hoping they caught this one before it turned into a fracture, but we’ll see. Hopefully, he makes it back, because he’s been excellent for Oakland this season, amassing a 3.39 ERA and allowing just one homer in 63 2/3 innings.
