    The Yankees had a lot of injuries this year, but Toronto is in another class in that regard. Just lost their catcher with a fracture hand.
    Okay Hal and Brian, I might be a sucker, but you got 3 more years to fix it!

    I guess it's only fitting that Spiderman turns in a webgem:

    Love the pitcher's reaction.

    I don't know if its official, but when Jim Johnson starts to break down, the Orioles are toast and headed towards their annual cellar position.

    And he hits the second batter he faces in the 8th... in the head. Lucky for him it was a curve ball

    That was yesterday ... he lost it with two outs in the eighth. Pitched a one-hitter, though.

    God damn it! I stopped watching the Rangers/Angles game after Pujols' 2nd HR, and missed the huge rally in the bottom of the 10th. That's some win for Texas.

    Wow.....why does he seem to be doing better with a national league? I guess it's true he had a hard time pitching in the big spotlight of NY.

    Yeah, he only pitches well in low pressure situations, like game 2 of the World Series.

    Burnett has been one of the most inconsistent pitchers in baseball over the last decade. Let's not try to ascribe psychological causes to that.

    No need to be snarky. I liked AJ - he just didn't seem like a good fit in the Bronx.

    There was nothing about being in the Bronx that made Burnett pitch poorly.

    Re: The Official 2012 Watching The Scoreboard Thread

    he embodies the clichés of post-Yankee life. His face has stubble. A pair of fishing rods were propped up in his locker. He appreciates not being hounded constantly by fans about his performance. And he said he feels a levity, a lack of internal pressure, which he believes affected him in the Bronx. “It’s completely different,” he said. “I can go out there and do what I want, how I want, when I want to. If I want to turn around upside down, I can do it — as long as I throw a strike. It was always the pressure I put on myself to do so good. And now, I’m just out there, just doing it.”


    Guess I'll take AJ's word and not some random poster on a message board.

    Seeing AJ do well is wonderful. He always tried his best for us. And none of us can fault him for that. He did the right thing for his family by taking the money on a contract he should have never been offered. Glad to see he can enjoy pitching during some of that contract.
    Thank you for making me calm today, Brett Gardner

    Agree snapple! I wish it worked out for him to stay in the Bronx....but he seems better off now.

    Nolan's gotta be fuming. Taking Dempster out after only 103 pitches. What is Ron Washington thinking?
