BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2007 It is tough being a living emblem of everything that is wrong with an organization, or at least sharing that distinction with Sean Casey and Joe Randa. `Veteran stopgap` can be a lucrative gig, but you have to produce enough so that you can continue being one. Burnitz didn`t in 2006 and could be in jeopardy of making the leap from veteran stopgap to just plain stopped. It seems like we say this every year, but many believed that Burnitz was overdrafted as the Mets first-round pick (17th overall) in 1990. Dallas Green didn`t think he could play, and he didn`t get a chance to play regularly until he was 28. Despite those obstacles, he still hit over 300 home runs in the big leagues. We don`t know how he feels about it, but we`re satisfied.
2006 Reggie Sanders `settled down` and played for the Cardinals in consecutive seasons, so Burnitz is currently the game`s great wandering slugger; the Pirates will be his sixth team in the last six years. The last time Burnitz didn`t bop 30 home runs was also the last time he was expected to star on a putative contender, the 2002 Mets. Now that he`s 37, it`s unlikely that he`ll do either again--mash thirty or star--but he`s had an excellent career for someone who didn`t really get going until he was on the wrong side of 27.
2005 A better defender than perceived, and precisely the hitter that people think he is. He's a swing from the heels bomber who's not as good as he looked this year in Colorado, and certainly isn't worth an enormous sum. That said, he's a legitimate 30-homer guy who plays pretty reasonable outfield defense, and those don't grow on trees. A free agent, he's spoken to several teams and will likely sign soon after press time.
2003 Say what you want about Dean Taylor, but he didn’t trade Burnitz a moment too soon. With the best of intentions, Burnitz tried, hustled, struggled, and died through all six months of the season, like a fly on the windscreen stuck in a feedback loop. He can reach that projection, but let’s face it, in today’s game, he’s an old man with problems making contact in a tough place to hit. Adding Floyd should move him out of the heart of the order, and he can almost be a marginal asset hitting seventh or lower in a lineup.
2002 The question has never been whether Burnitz contributes, even in a year as poor as his 2000. It’s more a matter of cost. He’s sort of baseball’s Macy Gray: without a really good collection of backup singers, you might notice that he’s not as good as he’s cracked up to be. He’s a classic “old player’s skills” guy, which makes him a candidate for an early career fade. Burnitz is under contract for a huge chunk of change in 2003, and the clock is ticking, so chances are the Brewers won’t get a good package for him before his decline becomes apparent.
2001 Jeromy Burnitz’s right hand was broken by a Jose Rosado pitch on July 17, 1999. For a long time after that, he wasn’t the same hitter. He had 26 homers in 343 at-bats at the time of the injury, then hit just seven more in 141 at-bats after returning a month later. He spent most of 2000 in a deep funk before getting hot over the final three weeks of the season. Hand injuries often linger, and we’re betting that his late-season surge is a sign that he’s finally over it. Hopefully the Brewers will sign him to an extension before the start of the season; otherwise, trade rumors could be an ongoing distraction.
2000 The team's MVP, but was it for hitting well or for knocking out Vina for two months? Burnitz is either the best bad glove in right field, or the worst good one. He throws well and can do the basic things, but he's one of the worst you'll see going back on balls hit over his head. With the Brewers' pitching, that's a problem that comes up a lot. There was a lot of whining that he wasn't being protected and was being pitched around, even though he had his best season despite missing a month to a hand broken by a Jose Rosado pitch.
1999 Okay, I’m easily amused, but there was a stretch of games where every time I showed up in Milwaukee, Burnitz would jack a pitch into the cheap seats. That streak was finally broken, but in the meantime Bob Hamelin had started a similar streak. Some think he was pressing after the All-Star break, and his OBP dropped like a rock. The perfect example of the kind of player “small market” teams need to find, trade for, and develop.
1998 The perfect Garner player: cranky, no-nonsense, capable of contributing in several ways. With Mieske gone, Burnitz should play every day in right in 1998. His success mimics everything you need to know about the Brewers: he’s a fine player who’s older than you think. I bet the Mets aren’t unhappy about losing him; after all, they’ve got Alex Ochoa. Did I mention Carl Everett? Brian McRae?
1997 A member of the Ken Phelps All-Star team, for those of you who remember the Bill James concept from the ’80s. Hits for power, draws some walks, won’t kill you in the field. A perfect platoon partner who’s been passed over for playing time by the likes of David Hulse, George Wendt and the Mets’ “Five-Tool Outfielder Who Can’t Hit of the Week.” [tm]
1996  Burnitz has been a tough player to figure out, with his power and walks fluctuating wildly from one year to the next. Lefty with a big platoon split, fast, fair defense.

2010-01-06 13:00:00 (link to chat)FYI, next couple of HOF classes are thin. Best candidates for 2011 are Bagwell, Raffy Palmeiro (zero shot), Kevin Brown, Al Leiter and Larry Walker. Best candidates for 2012 are Bernie Williams, Tim Salmon and....I dunno, Carl Everett? Rick Helling?
(El Angelo from elangelo@gmail.com)
The 2012 class is thinner than prison gruel. Honestly there aren't five guys among this lot who would get more than a single paragraph out of me in the JAWS series:

Edgardo Alfonzo, Pedro Astacio, David Bell, Jeromy Burnitz, Vinny Castilla, Scott Erickson, Carl Everett, Jeff Fassero, Alex S. Gonzalez, Danny Graves, Rick Helling, Dustin Hermanson, Jose Hernandez, Brian Jordan, Matt Lawton, Javy Lopez, Bill Mueller, Terry Mulholland, Jeff Nelson, Phil Nevin, Brad Radke, Joe Randa, Tim Salmon, Ruben Sierra, Jose Vizcaino, Bernie Williams, Eric Young (Jay Jaffe)
2009-07-30 14:00:00 (link to chat)This is going to be bad for a while, isn't it?
(The North Shore from Pittsburgh)
Yeah, it's probably going to get worse for the Pirates before it gets better but there is at least some light at the end of the tunnel now. At least, they're not trading for Sean Casey and signing Joe Randa and Jeromy Burnitz anymore. (John Perrotto)
