Brandon McCarthy (0-0, -.--) vs. Jered Weaver (0-0, -.--)
In the current divisive political climate of this country, a return to McCarthyism might not be something that we should be celebrating. But given the abyss of the back end of the Dodgers' starting rotation, we may as well give Brandon a shot here. Brandon has already "earned" $28M of his $48M, four-year contract with the Dodgers, pitching a total of 63 innings and delivering five wins and 73 strikeouts. Let's see if he can overcome his elbow and hip maladies and earn us a series win in today's early game.
