Kennedy-Miley-Cahill-McCarthy

1 of Corbin/Bauer/Skaggs as the #5.

Hudson coming back mid-season.

collmenter is part of dbacks too. he should be able to bounce back

If I remember correctly he was at the bottom of the priority list last year in terms of getting in the rotation. I'd think they'd use him in the pen for now. Speculation ofcourse.

Good signing for the Dbacks depending on dollars.

Two year fifteen million total from the sound of it. Great deal for the D'Backs.

That's an amazing deal.

Good luck to Brandon and his wife. I'm glad he was able to get back to normal and get his pitching career back on track.

The A's have plenty of depth to fill his void. I can't wait to see Dan Straily get a full time spot.

MurrayBannerman 12-07-2012 04:54 PM

Damn them. Damn them to hell.

Agreed.

Really wanted the Twins to grab him. Great guy and pretty good pitcher when healthy.


Has a hot wife too.

he was ahead of miley just before start of 2012. he was one of their starters in playoffs back in 2011. he's not anything special but he can eat solid portion of eanings.

Can't believe it took ten posts for someone to note how attractive Amanda is, think we broke some sort of internet law there. Brandon and Amanda are both well worthy of twitter follows for anyone who engages in that social network and doesn't already follow. I don't follow any other professional athletes, but they're both hilarious and good people.

Zubrus Coffee Maker 12-07-2012 05:44 PM

wow, great signing

Will follow

Thanks for suggestion, they are hilarious

He's gonna be the #6 most likely. Spot starts and good pen work. His pen numbers are quite good, the unorthodox delivery probably helps. I don't think he will ever see 20+ games started in a season again on this team with the pitching prospect depth around here.

I'd say at this point, the DBacks are one of few teams that have surefire better rotations than the Jays.

darko 12-07-2012 07:41 PM

Good signing for Arizona and lets hope McCarthy can stay healthy.

Oakland wont have any problems replacing McCarthy's production.

Oakland has a better rotation. The Giants, too.

Oakland, San Fran, Tampa, D-Backs, Nats, and Braves are the only teams with better rotations than the Jays for sure, with all but 2 being NL teams.

I hope for Jays fans sake that Johnson re-signs and Romero gets it back together. It's been awhile for them and the fans deserve a contender.

D-backs sign Brandon Mccarthy from the A's.....I was pretty convinced he was going to stay in Oakland after the way the org took care of him after he nearly died on the mound, but cant fault a guy who can't stay healthy for a full season for saying yes to a $15.5 M deal for 2 years.

It's not like the A's are missing the pitching to replace him either.

Beane spelled it out in his interview at the winter meetings. He really likes McCarthy and his wife, but he believes the team has depth to fill his spot.

Kershaw 12-08-2012 08:29 PM

Miley
Cahill
Kennedy
McCarthy
Hudson
Collmenter
Bauer
Skaggs

lol.
