Before this year, as a Yankee fan, I really never thought that I would be depending on A.J. Burnett for anything. I used to hate him. Everything about the guy, from his angry sneer to his demonstrative asshole presence on the mound. His freakish gifts and his inconsistent performances. He was an easy target.
Burnett will be donning the Road Grays today and trying to salvage at least some semblance of dignity from what has been a very disappointing start to the season. Win today and the Yankees are one game from .500, lose and they'll need to sweep the Royals to get back there.
You can use this as a game thread if you have a way of following the game at work. See you in the comments section.
You don't need no gypsy to tell you why,
You can't let one precious day slip by,
Look inside yourself, and if you don't see what you want,
Maybe sometimes then you don't,
But leave your mind alone and just get high.
