Peruse Allen James Burnett’s 2010 game log if you dare. May 9th seems like an eternity ago, when he entered his start in Baltimore with a 1.99 ERA and looked every bit the pitcher who graduated from the ‘school of Halladay’ that the Yanks thought he was when they signed him back in 2008. Since that early dominance, the ERA has climbed steadily. He hasn’t had a win since the end of July, but W/L doesn’t tell you anything about how he’s pitched. It seems like he hasn’t had a good game in forever, but he actually had 2 quality starts in August and was outstanding in July (2.00 ERA) and April (2.43 ERA) this year. But his horrendous June (11.35 ERA) and bad August (7.80) have left fans expecting the worst from him, and all too often he’s delivered. Though it’s not all that dissimilar to his 09 campaign, where he had a good June (2.10 ERA) and July (2.43 ERA) and a bad August (6.03 ERA).
When looking at a pitcher like AJs game log, I prefer to just pull out the real clunkers, the games where he really didn’t give his team a chance to win. Starts where a pitcher gives up 4 runs or less on a team like the Yanks that has scored 679 runs (5.35 per game) has done his job and kept his team in the game. In 2010, Burnett has given up 5 or more runs a whopping 9 times in 26 starts, or just under 1/3 of the time. On this date in 2009 and 2008, AJ had 6 outings each year where he gave his team little chance to win the game. It’s part of his profile to have these outings where nothing seems to be working for him. He’s a 2 pitch pitcher, so when one of them isn’t working, hitters sit on it and crush him.
He’s signed for another 3 years, so get used to it. Every spring they try to get him to work on his change up, and every year he doesn’t throw it (3.1%/3.3% past two seasons). Why not? Beats me, it’s the only plus pitch he has this year (+1.3) his “electric” fastball has been a negative for the past 3 seasons (-6.2/-14.4/-5.9). Even his out pitch, the devastating hard curve that he throws has been down this year (-4.5).
After yesterday’s game, Girardi left open the possibility of skipping AJ’s next start in favor of Javier Vazquez. When Joe leaves open a possibility, it usually happens. It’s almost September, the Yanks have played .500 baseball for a month (14-14 in August). They’re tied with the Rays atop the AL East and the Red Sox just 4.5 back of both teams. There’s no more time for working out your problems, even for a veteran like AJ. It’s time to produce, or give someone else the ball.
