  • Burnett asked to leave Marlins

    QUOTE
    Marlins cut ties with Burnett
    Associated Press

    MIAMI -- A.J. Burnett is very close to becoming a former Florida Marlin.

    Marlins general manager Larry Beinfest said Burnett has been asked to leave the team and will not be offered a multiyear contract during the offseason. The decision came a day after the pitcher said the team plays scared because manager Jack McKeon and the coaching staff are too negative. Burnett popped off after losing his sixth decision in a row at Atlanta.

    Beinfest says Burnett has not been suspended and will be paid for the rest of the season.

    Burnett becomes a free agent after the World Series. He went 12-12 this season with two shutouts, four complete games and a 3.44 ERA. [/b][/quote]

      I'm not saying Burnett is wrong, but Dontrelle sure doesn't seem scared.

          Is there anyone who thought they'd offer him a legit one anyway?

            McKeon is a douche though.

              Guy loses his sixth in a row and blames the coach?

              Can't have that kind of shit from a player on your team. Keep that shit in house, or you at least wait until after the season is over, and you know you won't be back.

                Someone is going to end up overpaying him in the offseason. I hope it's the Yankees or Orioles, but I fear it will be the Sox.

                  He is this year's version of Carl Pavano. I also think someone with overpay for Matty Mo.

                  Dear God, KBF here. I'd just like to say thanks, once again, for allowing Dusty Baker and I to live during the same time period. Every time I think he's given me his last gift -- overpitching Prior in the playoffs, getting cocky in Game 6 vs. the Angels, blowing another game for the Cubs -- he does something stupid like pitching to Albert Pujols. Thy will be done, baby!!!!!

                      All four legitimate teams in the AL East are reportedly hot after him. All four are going to be willing to overpay for a 29 year pitcher, despite outstanding stuff, still hasn't put it together and can't seem to be anything but a .500 pitcher. Seems like Darren Dreifort, minus the extreme injury concern.

                          Burnett had TJ surgery in 2003.

                              I wouldn't describe a 3.73 ERA as "top flight".

                              He's a pretty good pitcher. But he's rarely been dominant. And he appears to have a major attitude problem. Were I a GM from a big team I'd be very wary of signing him to a big contract.

                              Then again, Eric Milton signed for 3yrs/$21M.
