I think in Burnett you have a guy that has always taken a back seat to someone else in the rotation and is tired of it. In Florida it was Beckett, Toronto it was Doc Halladay, and now in the Bronx it is CC, if not Wang and Joba for that matter. He may be on a mission to let everyone know that he's the ace of the staff.
Girardi sits Ransom and brings in Pena - who promptly goes 0 for 3.
Is there anything Swisher can't do?
This time of year I always like looking at the projected numbers on ESPN stats.
At the current pace, here's where Swisher's stats would end up for the season:
BA: .458 HR: 81 RBIs: 223
In other news: Beckett out for 6 games, Giambi batting .333. Down in SWB: Hughes is 1-0, Ian Kennedy no decision after 6 innings, 1.50 ERA.
