Raise the Jolly Roger! May 23, 2015

A Happy Harvey Day…for AJ

On a day where Mets ace Matt Harvey (and far too many Batman puns) seemed poised to take the stage, A.J. Burnett was the main man for the Pirates…again. Burnett now stands alone with the best ERA in all of baseball. He’s still yet to allow more than two runs in a start. Regardless of how […]

Much better

As awesome as Gerrit Cole has been, the Pirates have a new stopper for the time being: A.J. Burnett. Once again, you can’t say enough about how good Burnett has been. He has still yet to allow more than two runs in a start. (Today he allowed zero.) His 1.38 ERA is 2nd-best in all […]

A happy return

At the time, the whole A.J. Burnett saga that ended up with him going to Philly last year was a pretty messy situation. But a year and a few months laster, it really couldn’t have worked out any better for the Pirates. Sure, they didn’t have him last year, but they got Edinson Volquez instead […]

Stat corner: Burnett's sparkling start puts him in rare company

Though his 1-1 record doesn’t show it, A.J. Burnett has been outstanding for the Pirates. The 38-year-old right-hander has a sparkling 1.66 ERA through six starts. In fact, he is just the fourth Pirat

About time those bats showed up

I suppose it’s fitting that the night the Pirate bats finally woke up came with A.J. Burnett on the mound. Burnett maintained his streak of allowing two runs or less in every start this season, but just now picked up his first win in his sixth game. Really, that’s all it was. The offense came […]

A.J. Burnett reaches 2400 strikeouts (VIDEO)

A.J. Burnett is now tied for 40th (with Dennis Eckersley) on the all-time strikeout list with 2401. Here’s number 2400: Your browser does not support iframes. Pretty cool feat. I don’t know if that many people realize how long A.J. has been around and how many he has whiffed – soon to be in the top-40 all […]

Reds at Pirates, Game 3: Preview and Predictions

Cincinnati Reds @ Pittsburgh Pirates Thursday, May 7, 20157:05 PM EDTPNC Park Anthony DeSclafani vs. A.J. Burnett COMPLETE COVERAGE > Disco tries to keep the ball rolling tonight. He showed that's he's human lately, so a bounce back would be great. Can we talk for a second about how great A.J. Burnett has been this year? He's got a 1.45 ERA in 5 starts, including 4 straight quality starts. He threw 6 shutout innings in his last start in St. Louis, but curiously hasn't had a winning decision yet. Let's hope the banged up Reds can do some damage. Go Reds. Bullpen...

Bad luck Burnett

That was not ideal: When the bases are loaded with no outs and your 2-3-4 hitters are up, you should score. When your veteran pitching staff leader starts the year with five excellent outings to the tune of a 1.45 ERA, you should get him some wins.  A.J. Burnett is tragically is still stuck on […]
