White Sox Quote of the Day: Brandon McCarthy

B-Mac on 21 year old re-acquired southpaw Gio Gonzalez:

[Scott Merkin]

"He's just a filthy little left-hander. His stuff is bigger than you would expect. He has an absolute hammer curveball, a fastball that jumps on you, and if I remember right, he has a good changeup. Gio was one of those guys who you found out when he was throwing because you wanted to watch and see what he has. Hitters might doubt Gio, but by the second time they see him, they better be prepared. He probably has the ability to get out lefties in the big league right now on stuff alone."

Any recent reports on Gio's stuff?

[editor's note, by The Cheat] I heard the original interview with McCarthy from which these quotes were cribbed. It was on Carmen & Silvy on ESPN 1000 during the first quarter of the Bears Monday night game. Quotes aren't quite intellectual property, but it would have been nice if Merkin pointed, you know, to the source of these quotes. It probably doesn't bug anyone but me. Oh well. I thought it was worth noting.
