Brewers season grades are out from the Journal Sentinel.
Seth McClung, RHP - Once again, McClung was versatile enough to pitch in relief and as a starter. But, unlike 2008 when that experiment worked, McClung wasn't nearly as successful. In two starts, he was 0-1 with a 12.27 ERA (10 runs in 7 1/3 innings) after going 4-4 with a 4.24 ERA as a starter last year. McClung had a nice relief stretch in May, pitching 15 1/3 innings and allowing three runs. But he couldn't duplicate those numbers afterward and fell out of favor. His season ended on a sour note with a sprained elbow ligament in July that sidelined him for more than a month, with sporadic work in the closing weeks. McClung finished 3-3 with a 4.94 ERA. GRADE: D-plus.
Why do we care about McClung's grade? Since Seth McClung is a Twitter guy, we get the benefit of his unedited reaction to this grade:
A D+ Grade? That must have been a Wittardo grade
Awesome. Not only does it confirm that the players think Witrado is a clown, but you better believe that he didn't mis-spell that name...that's what he calls Witrado, most likely to his face.
