I don’t know; I don’t think he’s as good of a pitcher as Chuck James, but he’s more advanced and doesn’t have James’ personality problems. He’s lefthanded, so that’s why he’d get the call over Lerew.
The good for McBride is that he’s struck out 42 in 41 innings in AAA. The bad is that he’s walked 22 and and allowed a .282 BA. His ERA is 4.17, which is actually better than Davies’.
