Brandon McCarthy in Ozzie's Doghouse now?

Postby kemper5 » Tue Apr 25, 2006 1:43 am

He may be.. Ozzie has a very short leash with his RP's..I put McCarthy in my starting lineup instead of David Weathers this week.. Mistake? Here is an interesting stat I just saw...


Chicago intentionally walked Jeremy Reed in front of Betancourt even though Reed was 2-for-16 in the past week. Betancourt was 7-for-18 during the same span.

Link .. ?

cus just a few days ago Ozzie was calling him his MVP ...

edit:
(Updated 04/20/2006). Brandon McCarthy is White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen's favorite for team MVP right now. Not only has the right-hander showed his manager that he could successfully make the transition from starter to reliever, but he's dominated. "To me, since we've been playing, besides Thome and (Paul) Konerko swinging the bat real well, we've won a lot of games because of 'Mac,'" Guillen said. "I think (pitching coach) Don Cooper is doing a tremendous job to monitor him."

Ozzie's fault for calling the intentional walk play. Should've pitched to the supremely inferior batter

Your talking because of tonight?

Bottom 11th: Seattle
- B. McCarthy relieved N. Cotts
- R. Sexson lined out to third
- C. Everett singled to right
- W. Bloomquist ran for C. Everett
- W. Bloomquist stole second
- Trü flied out to center
- J. Reed intentionally walked
- Y. Betancourt singled to left, W. Bloomquist scored, J. Reed to second



I'd rather pitch to Bettancourt too ..

Sometimes people need to not jump to conclusions and just sit back and think. I mea McCarthy gives up 1 run and suddenly he's outed, come on. :-t

I was upset the second he was intentionally walking him. Reed was 0-4 with something like .217 on the season. How much is a force-out situation worth?

True.. I just saw this stat on that..
