DBacks Brandon McCarthy traded to Yankees. 


According to MLB TradeRumors, pitcher Brandon McCarthy has gone from the DBacks to the Yankees for pitcher Vidal Nuno. I saw in some writings McCarthy may have held some interest from the Bucs. Looks like the pitchers may be getting sold off quick. If they are going to make some kind of deal maybe they should look into it quick because as the available pool of pitchers drops the prices will go up.

I'm glad we didn't get McCarthy.  He's been pretty bad the last two years.

The Yankees also gave up on their own homegrown guy---Nuno---really quickly.  That is a move that smacks of "King George" and not of the supposedly-much-more-farm-minded current ownership.  Except they're doing things just like George did before he wised up and gave his baseball people a lot more say in the day to day running of the organization.  Unless something changes and quickly, the Yankees are headed for some dark days.

McCarthy's peripherals look really good. It's an unusually high BABIP (.345 - should be .300) and an unusually high HR/FB% (20% - should be 10%). McCarthy was a guy I would have been good with Pittsburgh going after because he's a big-time regression candidate.
