Moves have makings of a master plan

LOS ANGELES -- Brandon McCarthy pitches in a statistically extreme way, so it makes sense he pays close attention to some of his numbers.

The Yankees were not going to go four years because of concerns about McCarthy's injury history and the fact he has pitched 200 innings just once in his career. Brian Cashman is preaching patience and insists the Yankees should not and will not do anything they are not comfortable doing.
