if the choice is between McCarthy and Shawn Hill you are either in a real deep league or you are in trouble. Shawn Hill has average stuff at best, doesn't strikeout much, all he does well is keep the ball on the ground. The NL East isn't as bad as it was a couple years ago, they now have some decent offenses, I won't expect the ERA to be too good, if I'm optimistic I'd say low 4. But that doesn't come with either good WHIP, K rate or W.
McCarthy, now you are just PlayingWithFire(TM)
