    Freak accident. Not like he has handled the bat a lot while pitching over in the AL.

    I wish him the best. He's a good guy.

    It's a shame to see any players get hurt. Pointless to be critical of him.

    This is obviously Tito's fault for not teaching him fundamentals.

    LOL!

     if Bobby V managed the Yankess, I'll bet shaving cream pies would be banned too. PS, After winning G2 of the 2009 WS, that was AJ's biggest contribution

    I said it was a bad trade from the beginning.  This is the BB gods punishing them.

    "Jesus Montero, the touted 22-year-old acquired in a trade with the New York Yankees for Michael Pineda, hit one of Seattle's five home runs. But Montero left in the fifth inning after being hit by a foul.

     Actually, Montero got hit twice in nearly the same place.

     "He's OK," Seattle manager Eric Wedge said. "He got hit in the jaw a couple of times. I don't know that I've ever seen that happen two times in a row like that. The first one got him pretty good but obviously the second one right on top of that, so we got him out of there."

    I did not like Burnett as a Yankee but I was hoping he would go to the Pirates and win 15+ games ... helping Pittsburgh to maybe being a better team.

    I took a baseball in the eye and had orbital surgery.  It ended my baseball career.

    Well, the surgery coupled with my complete lack of talent ended my baseball career. 

    Now that I think about it, maybe the surgery had nothing to do with it...

    He must have been a bad person in a previous life. My expectations of him were high, especially in 2010 and he completely fell apart.

    I wish him well - tough what happened.

    I was actually relating a true story.  I did take a baseball in the eye and fracture my orbital bone, resulting in surgery.

    I did not doubt you - I was only talking about TonyC..... even if Burnett recovers physically there will likely be a fear factor.

    Okay, Notin, THAT is funny!!

    I actually feel sorry for A.J. and hope he recovers and is able to at least be respectable for the Bucs. I do find it interesting that Montero also was hit in the face twice.....If they had remained Yankees they would have never been injured in any way as long as they wore pinstripes.Yell

    The only time in my life the manager was stupid enough to play me at SS, grounder up the middle, the 2B and I both stretch out for it, flicks off the 2B's glove, and catches me right square in the eye.  No bone damage, but the blackest black eye you ever saw.

    Like any real man, I walked into class the next day, told my teacher that the reason I didn't do the book report is I couldn't focus, and told everyone else that wasn't at the game, that I got the eye in a fight, because someone made a move on my girlfriend, that I didn't really have.

    I see AJ bunts with the same skill level as most Red Sox players.

    Re: AJ Burnett - The Enigmatic Saga Continues

    Mine was far more embarrassing.

    I was the best defensive OF on a team of, well, poor defenders.  not surprising for 12 and 13yos, but still.  The coach basically called me out as the ONLY outfielkder capable of cathcing a fly ball, and followed up with "OK, [notin], show them how its done."

    He then proceeds to hit one off the end of the bat, and I come charing in.  I stumbled on some rocky ground and lost sight of the ball.  But I kept chatring, looking up, and couldn't find it.

    And it came down SLAM, fitting perfectly into my eye socket!  Shattered my glasses - sending lens shards everywhere. My coach later admitted he thought those were my teeth.

    I did play again, but not right away.  I had to have the same surgery AJ Burnett is having, and it shut down my season.

    "Show them how it's done."  Hey, nice time to make me the example there, coach...

    WOW - You and AJ ; bosom buddies in the injury department, and both flukey. The difference is, you were a 12 yr old (I had a few flukey baseball related injuries at 12, one that I still live with), and he's a top paid big leaguer.
