Brandon McCarthy rips MLB Network’s Mitch Williams after ridiculous comment

Brandon-McCarthy-AsArizona Diamondbacks pitcher Brandon McCarthy fell victim to one of the most frightening moments of the season last year when he took a line drive to the head while pitching for the Oakland A’s. The injury required brain surgery and left McCarthy with this gnarly scar, but fortunately he has been able to resume his MLB career.

On Wednesday night, Mitch Williams of the MLB Network decided to use McCarthy’s horrifying injury to make a ridiculous point. Basically, he said that getting hit in the head by a line drive was the result of the way McCarthy pitches.

McCarthy himself has cracked jokes about the injury, but that doesn’t mean it’s a laughing matter. Of course, McCarthy wasn’t going to let him get away with it. He sent Williams a tweet ripping him for the comment and then used it to start a hilarious meme.

McCarthy’s followers jumped right on board, coming up with several clever variations of the meme. Deadspin shared several of them with us:

What a truly idiotic comment. Hopefully Williams is embarrassed by all the backlash he is receiving. He deserves every bit of it.
