So long AJ

<span style="font-weight: bold">Burnett is gone from the Bucco's. Enjoy Philly! Ha. I'm willing to bet that if he's in a tight game and gives away the go ahead run, that he doesn't get a standing ovation there like he did in the 'burgh. Everyone says it's a business, blah, blah, blah. Do any of you Bucco's fans think that him being benched last year in game #5 of the division series, had anything to do with it?</span>

Re: So long AJ

I absolutely think it was a factor.

As soon as he said he wanted to reture or return to Pittsburgh my hopes went down he would return. Just seems those scenarios never work out.

Re: So long AJ

I am sure if the Pirates payed up he would of stayed and I also think the team is now worse off without him. Just more proof to me that the Pirates are more interested in making a profit than winning a pennant.

I am sorry but one good year of baseball does not erase how bad they were for the last 20. They have done nothing to improve the team for this upcoming season and it's a shame.

Re: So long AJ

I too think this year is not gonna be good.I think they,ll hold their own and be competitive for the first half.But think the second half is gonna be a disaster.Yes losin Burnette is gonna hurt.I think if they would have started him he would be in Bradenton right now.They should have used him and give him a chance to break the curse.I haven,t heard the news yet but I thought the Phillies was out of it and it was either the Pirates or the Nats.

Re: So long AJ

The real problem he will have is that his ground balls will not turn into outs as easily as they did at PNC Park.

I'm not quite sure what you mean by that but the Phillies have a pretty good defensive infield.
