Brandon McCarthy’s wife informs hubby dog rolled in duck poop during ‘Chatting Cage’ (video)

Brandon McCarthy has doggy/duck poop issues, apparently. has a feature called “Chatting Cage” where fans are afforded the opportunity to ask baseball players questions via social media through an intermediary. It’s a pretty neat way to allow fans greater access to their baseball-playing heroes. An unforeseen perk apparently is that players’ wives can contact their husband to complain about the damn family dog’s messy backyard antics.

During the Arizona Diamondbacks pitcher’s foray into the “Chatting Cage,” Amanda joined the fray to alert McCarthy that the dog had rolled in some duck poop in the backyard and that she’d be damned if she was going to be the one to clean up the mangy mongrel.

Later, the two engaged in a witty back and forth regarding her interrupting the chat with such a trivial issue.

Awesome. This isn’t the first time the McCarthy’s have delighted the interwebs with their playful interactions. These two have something of a history with social media-based antics, most notably when Amanda tweeted a joke at her hubby, back when he was a member of the Oakland A’s in 2012, about whether or not use of a free trial of ExenZe would violate PED rules.

And on another occasion, again in 2012, after a very scary incident when McCarthy was hit in the head by a batted ball and suffered pidural hemorrhage, brain contusion and skull fracture and had to undergo emergency surgery, McCarthy, showing quite the sense of humor, inquired of his wife if a threesome would be in order upon his release. That’s brilliant, man.
