Re: Brandon McCarthy to Texas
I thought I remember McCarthy making some not so flattering remarks about needing to be a starter next year just a few weeks back.
Can't seem to find them now, but I thought it might have raised a few eyebrows at the time.
But it could be like Aronchis said - perhaps a few years of watching him has made Williams believe McCarthy is a high ceiling mirage and won't get much better.
On another note - It seems to me just about every time teams dealing established starting pitchers they make a comment about "dealing from strength" and yet it always seems to come back and bite them in the rear.
