AJ Burnett Is Actually Meeting Expectations for New York Yankees

Yes, you read the headline correctly.

No, I'm not drunk.

Yes, I mean THAT AJ Burnett and his multi-million salary with a 8-9 record, 4.54 ERA and 1.35 WHIP—which, by the way, is the lowest of his career in the Bronx.

So how can I justify such a ridiculous statement? (I might add, this is not as ridiculous a statement as claiming to have invented the question mark).

I took Burnett's salary of $16.5 million and went $3 million in each direction—looking for pitchers who are making between $13.5 million and $19.5 million this season.

Besides Burnett, there are nine pitchers who fall into that price range.

You'll be surprised by what you're about to see.

I know I was.
