The promised land

A.J. Burnett lasted 2.2 innings and gave up five runs against the Red Sox on June 9.

He said afterward: “I’m not very consistent right now. I’m not a negative guy, so I’m not going to beat myself up over it. But when I do get on that run, it’s going to be impressive. I promise you that.”

His last three starts: 20.1 innings, 10 hits, one earned run, 10 walks, 26 strikeouts.

That’s delivering on your promise. Burnett has shaved his ERA from 4.89 to 3.93 and right now no team in baseball has a better 1-2 punch than do the Yankees.
