Why the Yankees Have Confidence in a 15-Game Loser

10/19/2010

Yankees righty A.J. Burnett is good to very good at losing. This season he lost 15 games and was left off of the Yankees’ 3-man ALDS rotation.

Many suggested Girardi and the Yanks should have conceded the game to Lee and saved Pettite for Game 4. Pitching Pettite last night was a ridiculous gamble. Ri-dic-ulous. The best case scenario was that you steal a game from the Rangers, take a 2-1 series lead but with the distinct possibility that Burnett allows Texas to pull even in Game 4 anyway. Admit Burnett sucks, and you throw him to the wolves against Lee,you probably lose the game that you lost anyway and tonight you would’ve had Pettite and all his postseason success pitching against a fucking infant. Then you win game 4, tie the series 2-2 and carry all the momentum into game 5.

I guarantee the Yanks get smoked tonight.
