A.J. Burnett Is The Greatest Pitcher Of All Time!!

Well, not really.  But he did look sharp yesterday, and that's an encouraging sign for him, his coaches, his teammates, Cash, and Yankee fans.

21 pitches, 15 strikes, good fastball command, threw a few good breaking balls, worked out of trouble after back-to-back singles without allowing a run, didn't hit anybody with a pitch, and managed to not come out of the game with a black eye.  For a first ST start I don't think anybody could have asked for more than that.

He's still got a long way to go to build a bridge of consistency and make everybody forget about the 2010 nightmare, but yesterday was a good start.  Baby steps, baby steps.

(Hey look!  It's Good A.J.)
