Aj Bustnett the American League’s answer to Carlos Zambrano.

Oh I will not disappoint you robert G. This guy once again proved he is an overpaid BUM. For him to be insubordinate on the mound to his manager only indicates how bad a pitcher he is. The best thing the Yankees can do is send this joke to the bullpen, ONLY pitch him in a mop up role this year and send his @ss packing to the Cubs, Mariners, Astros or Pirates in the offseason. This Ed Whitson clone has pitched like CRAP vs. two of the worse teams in the AL; the Royals and Twins. Then mouths off to his manager. If this was Billy Martin or my dad that chain around his *amn neck would have been used as a noose. Enough with this clown, get rid of him.

Time for Hal Steinbrenner to step in and give A.J. Burnett the same treatment his dad gave Ken Holtzman!

Isn’t this just wonderful? Seeknay I’m waiting for your comments on Bustnett’s performance tonight. Don’t disappoint me.

This game has become a laffer(laffey)? Who’s laughing?

Burnett looking to start a winning streak. He’s been looking to start one the past 2 years and isn’t any closer now than he was. It ain’t going to happen. It will be win one and lose 5.

Can’t bring Garcia back yet – retroactive 15 day DL to the 8th making it Tuesday at the earliest he’d be able to come back. I’m beyond even looking for excuses now, 33 ER over his last 10 starts, less than 60ip, more hits than Elvis & well, i can’t see him pitching at Yankee Stadium again this season for fear he’ll be booed back to Arkansas! Problem is where do we go from here, it’s alright saying bench him or send him to the minors, but that’s half a solution to a problem – as things stand right now we could be looking at a situation where we’re short on starters in a big way next year.

I can hear it all now after this one. Bustnett making excuses, Girardi and Cashman defending their man and rationalzing his lousy outing. On and on it will go ad nauseum.

Like

What an exciting match up of pitchers–Liriano and Burnett. Burnett isn’t in the same league.

Like

Why not? Joe’s given up on this game after Burnett’s debacle so throw the new kid Laffey in and see what he can do. Probably going to lose this one anyway. What a joke!

My favorite player(Andruw Jones-not!) hits into a double play. Well what else is new. I guess you could say he didn’t strike out.

Like

After this game the Yankees will be a half game behind the Sox because of Burnett. Right now the Sox are winning. Great job Burnett. Couldn’t even get out of the 2nd inning? Laughable. And what will he say? Well put that one behind me and get ready for the next one blah blah blah.

Like

The debate has gone on about Bustnett all year, some wanting to give him a chance, some saying that if the Yankees are going to win the World Series they need AJ pitching blah blah blah. We’ll after tonight it’s obvious that Bustnett hasn’t got it, never really had it with the Yankees but because of all the money he is being paid and because Cashman doesn’t want to admit he made a mistake, they keep trotting AJ out there regularly as a starter. What will it take for Cashman and Girardi to finally put AJ in the bull pen? They can’t trade him because noone will take him at his price or with his inconsistency so the Yankees are stuck with him. And they won’t send him to the minors. On and on the saga goes. Noone has the guts to do the dirty deed. Bring Garcia back into the rotation and send Burnett to the pen. I wouldn’t even trust him at this point for one or two innings. Just terrible. He’s probably spoiled the chance of sweeping this series. Wake up Cashman and smell the coffee!!!

what a loser a j burnett is

Like

why is a j burnett still a yankee? he is one of the most overpaid pitchers in baseball. he cant hold a lead nor can he keep the game close. his era and record speaks for itself. he has been stealing and not earning his money ever since he became a yankee. they talk abouit jorge posada, a j burnett is ten times as worse. any other yankee pitcher would have been run out of town. he needs to be release or benched.
