A.J. Burnett: The Tale of Two Men

When A.J. Burnett steps out to the mound you never know what you are going to get. Sometimes he strikes out nine guys while pitching 7 innings and sometimes he gives up 8 runs to Toronto. Every Yankee fan knows what I am talking about, this guy is inconsistent. I can take just the starts from this month to show you.

August 2nd was a bad A.J. sighting, he pitched 4 and 2/3rds innings while giving up 8 runs on 8 hits against Toronto.

August 10th good A.J. showed up, though he lost, A.J. still pitched 7 innings while giving up three runs to the Rangers, one of the best offenses in baseball.

August 15th really good A.J. showed up against the Royals, he pitched 8 innings and only gave up one run but lost due to some guy named Bullington.

August 20th was last nights game and he looked like shit. He gave up 12 hits and 6 runs to one of the worst offenses in baseball.

It is like Mr. Burnett is living a double life.
