Sometimes, analysts talk out of their asses. Actually, oftentimes, analysts talk out of their asses. MLB Network's Mitch Williams was doing exactly that when he recently tried to use Brandon McCarthy's horrifying head injury as a teaching tool for "pitching in," essentially assigning blame to McCarthy for a freak moment in time -- one that he's still recovering from.

First, McCarthy fired back in serious fashion...
.@WildThingMLBN I hope the clip of me nearly dying helped you make one of your asinine points.— Brandon McCarthy (@BMcCarthy32) July 11, 2013
And then he started a whole new Twitter trend...
"If you go to autotrader dot com this is what's gonna happen"- Mitch Williams, talking over a clip of an 8 car pileup— Brandon McCarthy (@BMcCarthy32) July 11, 2013

@BMcCarthy32 "If you fail out of art school this is what happens" -Mitch Williams on the Third Reich— Ryan M (@Bulbastroyed43) July 11, 2013
We'd like to propose a variation of this meme in which we swap the teacher with the example.
How 'bout: If you grow a mullet, this is what's gonna happen...
That still gives me chills.
Someone want to tell Brandon McCarthy that Mitch also was hit in the head and knows what he's talking about. So Brandon we already see what happens if you don't pitch inside, you run your mouth like an idiot on twitter.
If that call isn't in your Greatest Calls tournament, you made a mistake. "Touch 'em all Joe, you'll never hit a bigger home run in your life" - magic.
@mjarviejr Actually Brandon did a really good job with this. Williams proves today that brain damage can occur with a shot to the Coconut.
