AJ Burnett

OK, so I'm not advocating that the Cards MUST go get AJ Burnett or anything.  In fact, I am of the opposite belief that AJ is not good for the Cardinals because he adds another oft-injured pitcher who's arm might fall off at any moment.  The big "but" is, did anyone see the numbers he put up last night to stop the streaking Yankees?  The Yankee lineup is completely bombing the ball right now.  In the since stopped 7 game win streak, they scored 55 runs.  That's almost 8 runs a game for a week.  They hit .297 as a team, with an OBP of .349, and a SLG of .558 (that's a team OPS of .947!)  They also had 16 homers and 17 doubles in those 7 games.

AJ's line last night:
8 IP, 4 H, 2 BB, 1 R (earned), 8 Ks (10:6 GB:FB)

That is downright nasty against that lineup.
