LOS ANGELES, CA – JULY 20: Brandon McCarthy /

3. Inking Brandon McCarthy to a 4-year deal

In December of 2014, the Dodgers signed Brandon McCarthy to a four year, $48 million dollar deal.  It was a deal in which four years seemed to be far too many for an injury-prone starter and that is exactly what it turned into.  The Dodgers already had Clayton Kershaw, Zack Greinke, and Hyun-Jin Ryu in their rotation so that made the move even more puzzling.

McCarthy underwent Tommy John surgery just four starts into his four-year deal.  He also took the loss in game two of the 2017 World Series allowing a two-run home run.  In total for the regular season, McCarthy made 29 starts in three years with the Dodgers and pitched to an ERA of 4.51.  Brandon was a good addition to the Dodgers if Twitter humor counts for anything though.
