McCarthy will not join the A’s on their upcoming roadtrip, as one might assume. Not because he’s stats guy who interacts with pitch f/x gurus on his terrific twitter account but because he’s a guy who was injured at work, I hope Brandon McCarthy is okay. Are we one step closer to pitchers wearing some sort of padded hat/helmet onto the field? Probably not. Nobody deserves to die at work so here’ hoping.
