2010 Player Previews: AJ Burnett

2009: AJ Burnett was brought in during the 2009 offseason in order to help CC Sabathia shoulder the load. While Burnett did not live up to the high expectations, he did pitch well enough to get the job done and was crucial in helping out the bullpen.

Evaluating Hideki Matsui’s Season

Coming into this season people didn’t know what to expect from Hideki Matsui. He was 34 going on 35 and coming off a couple of knee surgeries. Also, being in the final year of a four-year/$52 million contract nearly everyone assumed that he would be out of the Bronx in 2010. Almost unexpectedly Hideki Matsui has ...
