I like A.J.

I hate his contract, but I like A.J. Burnett as a person.

If you saw the press conference or heard what he said, you'll know what I'm talking about. He exuded confidence and was honest. When asked about if he came here for the money, he didn't say "no," because obviously money factors into the equation. Aside from money, it sounded like he legitimately wants to be a Yankee and play for a winner.

After listening to people like Alex Rodriguez speak over the last few years, Burnett seems like a breath of fresh air.

Hopefully he can stay healthy. Let's start the season.

Really? A dig at Alex?

Not necessarily a dig. He's just seems like a boring interview and doesn't seem very personable. A.J. seems like a great person to talk to.
