Plenty of question marks for potential playoff teams
but he’s not even in the equation to start.
Overall, A.J Burnett has been awful, excluding some of his recent starts
Is there an equivalent? Were the '98 Yankees full of "exclaimation points?"
They just had simple, uncontested periods everywhere.
He's having an almost identical season to last year, which was good enough to get him that 5/$85 contract. How awful can he have been?
Looking at the game logs, he's had 11 starts in August and September. Of those, he's had 4 stinkers, 4 excellent starts, and three decent starts (two of which were QS of the 3ER/6IP variety, and one of which just missed that standard by 1 out). He could have easily gone 7-4 in that stretch, rather than 2-5, in which case Kruk would probably have been pumping him up.
The Sox look to me to be the one, of all the teams likely headed to the postseason, that is the most dolled up and ready to play in the playoffs.
Boston is really the only team heading into the postseason that you can look at and say, “This team is ready for the playoffs.”
