DateQuestionAnswer
2008-12-15 13:00:00 (link to chat)What are the chances that AJ Burnett makes 30 starts a year for the life of his new contract?
(mattymatty from Philly)
Each year? Almost none. Burnett is not a healthy pitcher. He's talented, occasionally dominant, but has shown both physical and mental frailties. One of the more surprising things here for me is that Burnett was influenced strongly by pitching coach in coming to Toronto. He's pretty much tossing that aside, which I can't decide - does it say more about Dave Eiland or less about Brad Arnsberg? I don't like the contract and there's not even an opt-out to save them. There's probably one, maybe two years in there where they'll get the performance they want. (Will Carroll)
