If I were AJ Burnett, I’d be saying, “How come my teammates score so many runs for CC but not for me?”
Not that he didn’t make mistakes in tonight’s loss to the O’s; those home run meatballs were his responsibility. But four runs isn’t a huge deficit for a team like the Yankees to make up and he did have all those strikeouts. He deserved better.
Especially against the Orioles. How many times have we faced Guthrie now? And suddenly he’s Cy Young?
I hope Gardner didn’t hurt his hand smashing the bat on the ground after he killed the rally in the ninth. Ouch.
A-Rod, if you can hear me, please come back soon. This lineup needs you. A lot.
