Is it just me, or does Burnett look like John McEnroe? But here's a fun fact: I'll always like McEnroe more than I'll like Burnett. Simply because Burnett is a Yankee.

As Burnett's gotten older his strikeout rates have dropped, his groundball rates have fallen, his flyball rates have jumped and, not surprisingly, his velocity is coming down as well. Burnett has a tendency to work himself into trouble, so if the Twins can put him under some pressure early today they could see him implode. Let's hope so, because it'd be great to get a win in New York to take an early-season series in the Bronx.
