    Re: Your expectations for AJ (Lackey) Burnett tonight?

    Remember two of his good starts were against us when we couldn't hit our way out of a wet paper bag.

    Given he is on the road, my sense is the Yanks are in trouble here, however Rick Porcello??? Sounds like a slugfest in a pitchers ballpark in store.

    I'm a Yankee fan, its over.  Good season, Yanks won the division when they weren't supposed to but the season ends tonight.

    This stuff is hard to predict.  But just for fun I'll say he gives up 4 runs in 4.1 innings.  I think Girardi will be quick with the hook and will have Hughes ready.

    Agreed.  He could be dominating or a total flop.  Given the Yankees' depth in the pen and light use so far in this series with the season on the line, the hook could come at the first sign of big trouble.  That could even mean the first inning if necessary. 

    If he's shaky, the key for Detroit is to produce before he's lifted.  A three-run dinger or grand slam before they can respond with a pitching change would be nice.

    Let's summon the spirit of Johnny Damon vs. Kevin Brown for this one.

    From a NY perspective, completely impossible to predict. Short leash for Burnett tonight.May throw five or six strong innings and give way to a rested pen. May implode in the 2nd or 3rd and get blown out. Tigers will be told to lay off pitches in the dirt. I can see 3 ERs over 5 with 4 BBs and 7-8 Ks, but middle of Yanks order needs to hit. Way too cold for a short series. If Yanks can put up 6 or 7 against an up or down Porcello, I like their chances. If not, that means Porcello was at least OK, and series might be over.

    I'm going to sort of dodge the question.  If he gets through the first 2 innings okay, 0/1 run, I think he will give them 6 good innings, especially if the Yanks get to Porcello and give AJ a bit of a cushion.

    U bet nut

    even harder with AJ

    we can't count on him and you can't count on him failing

    the quintessential 500 pitcher

    but these are the games I wanted to get him for

    he has the stuff to take it to the next level





    you & the  Sheriff  are both right about giradi tonight

    he will be ready

    Agree that if he is struggling, he will be replaced with someone else.  The Yankees have a very good bullpen.

    In Response to Your expectations for AJ (Lackey) Burnett tonight?:
    ESPN: The Yankees' hopes of extending this series rest with Burnett (11-11, 5.15 ERA), who was so unreliable this season that he wasn't supposed to start versus the Tigers. A rainstorm changed that when Game 1 was suspended Friday night, eliminating the off day after Game 2 and forcing both teams to alter their pitching plans. "I feel good about what A.J. is going to do for us," manager Joe Girardi said. Girardi's confidence may stem from Burnett winning his last two road starts, as he went 1-0 with a 3.18 ERA while striking out 15 in 11 1/3 innings. The right-hander turned in three solid starts in September, two of them coming against Boston. However, he led the major leagues with 25 wild pitches -- eight more than his previous career high and 10 more than anyone else -- and posted the second-highest ERA of his career. "I had good games, bad games during the season," Burnett said. "You can say the same thing about the postseason, but you can't count me out. "I'm going to bring everything I've got. And just let A.J. loose out there." Burnett has struggled in his last two postseason starts. He gave up five runs in six innings of a 10-3 loss to Texas in the 2010 ALCS and lasted two innings in Game 5 of the '09 World Series, allowing six runs in an 8-6 defeat. "I've been proving people wrong my whole career," Burnett said. "People are entitled to their opinion. Obviously, I give them reasons here and there to doubt. The bottom line is I have confidence in myself. I'm not going to go out and try to prove anything. I'm going to go out and try to win a ballgame." He's 2-2 with a 7.17 ERA in four starts at Detroit.

    The best pitching was with the Rays, Rangers,Tigers and Phils so the Yanks losing shouldn't surprise us.

    Yeah, he's been proving people wrong his whole career -- ie, people like the Yankees who kept thinking he was a stud...

    I say he'll pitch a moderately decent game, but still lose.

    Don't much care about the final score as long as Yanks lose and this board can forget them until next year.

    Sorry gang - AJ s*cked it up and the Yanks singled to death the Tigers bullpen. Now how about some love for Granderson and his defense today.

    Well I was wrong and I don't mind being wrong in this instance as AJ got the job done.
