So Brandon McCarthy's has (i guess?) made him a sexy pick-up right now. This is from Rotoworld:

Brandon McCarthy - S - White Sox

Unless Mark Buehrle's condition gets surprisingly worse over the next week, Brandon McCarthy (3-0, 0.59 ERA) will begin the season at Triple-A.
The Sox have a contigency plan in place if Buehrle can't go on Opening Day. Freddy Garcia would draw that start, followed, in order, by McCarthy, Jose Contreras, Orlando Hernandez and Jon Garland. Be sure to stash McCarthy away in AL-only leagues regardless of where he begins the season. Mar. 26 - 9:27 am et

is he actually worth the stash? seems to me he's just one of a few talented kids waiting for an injury in the AL (along FHernandez lines...) He's probably worth it in a keeper, i s'pose

Came back to earth yesterday. With Buehrle just about ready he may go back to the minors.

McCarthy is definately worth the stash if you lineup is already solid. This kid has some nasty pitches, he's young, and new so batters aren't use to him yet. He'll get called up at some point this year.

But then again, the south siders never had so many promising pitchers. Last time I checked, they had 12.
