Burentt Struggles Again

The battle between A.J. Burnett and, well, A.J. Burnett has been rough the last four starts.  His stuff is top-10 on baseball but he can’t seem to get in under control and for a guy who actually cares it’s hard to imagine why he struggles so much.

People are looking for who to blame.

How’s the absence of Dave Eiland affecting Burnett?

Is it Posada?  Is his foot still hurt from the come backer that hit him last week?

None of those are to blame for Burnett’s struggles.  He’s done this his whole career and he knows it.  We’re all still amazed when he has games like he did on Monday night when he gave up three runs in the first inning all with two outs, but we shouldn’t be.

Every season Burnett has games like Monday’s and it’s just part of the deal when you sign him to a big contract like the Yankees did in 2009.  Eventually, he’ll have some games when he looks lights out, like he did when he was with the Blue Jays and would always shut the Yankees down.  Actually, this will probably happen in his next start.

This is all just part of the career of A.J. Burnett.  You don’t really know what you’re going to get when he steps on the mound.  But it will be entertaining.  That we do know.
