Oh PLEASE start A. J. Burnett in the playoffs
Not only did he finish the season with a nifty 5.26 ERA and lost 15 games on a team that has won 95 games (he's the REVERSE of Felix Hernandez) but last night pulled a classic Chuck Knoblauch... arguing a call without calling time and letting a run score.
Seeing the Yankees lost the game in the 10th inning, it is safe to say the run was important. And seeing the loss may have cost the Yankees home field advantage, it is safe to say the game was important.
So clearly Burnett is not just physically ready but also mentally ready for the post season.
