Brandon McCarthy discusses EyeForAnEyeGate

New, comments

Yeah, it's a crap name for the controversy, I know. Brandon McCarthy is serving as a guest host on FOX Sports 1’s “Crowd Goes Wild” this week, and during yesterday’s show, he was asked about Kevin Towers recent comments.

Here's what he had to say in regard to Towers' comments:

"I understand the underlying point, we do need a personality shift, we do need to be tougher as a team. I don’t know that necessarily means we have to go out and hit people – it’s not a head hunting thing. It’s just simply we have to change our mentality. We are up against a 300 million dollar behemoth and the only way you compete with that is trying to find new ways to beat them. For us, it’s just going to be a personality and clubhouse shift."

He is also asked about throwing at hitters and the Dodgers celebrating in the Chase Field pool, preferring to look forward to next season: "Next year is what we need to focus on. It's how do we stop them from swimming in our pool next year? How do we get to celebrate in our pool next year? We open with them in Australia -- you focus on those games and let everything from last year just fall behind."
