Almost forgot to mention this one, I don’t know how. A.J. Burnett pitched last night with a black eye. Check out these photos:
Nobody knows what happened and he or the Yankees aren’t talking. Here is what he did say:
“I’m not going to comment, but I understand you have to ask,” Burnett said. “I think there’s more important things going on right now than my eye.”
Whatever happened, it’s much better that he’s got a black eye than a broken hand.
