    I think, at best, we should expect Burnett to allow three runs this evening. And, at worst, it could be closer to seven. Now, how many runs the Yankees will score…it’s open for debate.

    For what it’s worth, in his last 22 IP of the regular season, Tommy Hunter’s ERA was 2.45. (Granted, yes, that’s a small sample size.) And, in the ALDS against the Rays, he whiffed 7 of the 18 batters that he faced. So, how many runs do you think the Yankees will score tonight?

      I hate to get all Mr. T on this but all signs are leading to one thing: pain.
