    Hey, A.J., beware Abreu, Figgins, Kendrick and Napoli tomorrow night…and, if you can get by them, you’ll probably get to have some champagne with your cream pies after the game.

      …and for the sake of perversity, it’ll be Hunter that gets the big hit off him, if there is one.

      Well, it can be said, that in baseball, nothing happens on average…

      Steve,
      Can you flip this and show the same for us vs. Slackey?

      Kendrick’s swinging a hot bat right now so I’d agree that they should pitch carefully to him. The same goes for Abreu, who has enough of a sample against Burnett to be taken seriously.

      I’d also echo Evan’s sentiments and be careful with Hunter, since he lives to annoy the shit out of the Yankees. And Vlad, as we know, is capable of taking one deep…

      A.J., beware of your own head. Don’t let it get scrambled because you are pitching the biggest game of your career so far.
