Picture of the Day: New look, same bad pitching

Aug 10, 2011, 4:10 PM EST

A.J. Burnett changed his hair style prior to last night’s game, but unfortunately for the Yankees his pitching style stayed the same.

    Man, I can’t believe that didn’t work. Got any more ideas?

      Common Man, what happened to your site? Domain says they own you! And not in the way the Pirates own the Rockies either…

      he could try switching positions. Im sure the Yanks could always use another bat boy and he wouldnt be able to cost them games in that role (although if anyone could find a way its AJ)

      Didn’t you guys pay your godaddy bill? ;D

    That’s horrible. Looks like a bird’s nest. I guess $16.5 million doesn’t buy you a good haircut in the Bronx…

      Chris Fiorentino = stand up individual. lets take a look at a message one might receive on their wordpress account from Chris:

      “You are the biggest fucking moron I have ever debated with. Jesus Christ, the whole time I am saying that if it is Bautista’s word against whoever threatened him then it is not important. And then at the end, you finally say the same fucking thing? You stupid dolt. Why don’t you just go down on each Toronto Blue Jay one at a time and leave the sports debate to those of us who have a fucking clue you dumbass.”

      speaks for itself and proves there is no need to read his comments, you know the level of intelligence youre gonna get

        Hey derpdederpdederp, you are very lucky that Craig isn’t around because this is like the 4th time today you have posted profanity. I believe Craig was pretty clear that he doesn’t want profanity on his board, yet you called me a f***ing idiot, and now this? If you don’t like what I posted on your stupid wordpress account, then ban me from there. My God man, are you that starved for affection that you need to have your thumbs ups and have everyone know how truly idiotic you really are?

        I feel for you, my friend. And I will be praying for you. God Bless sir.

      • derpdederpdederp - Aug 10, 2011 at 9:45 PM

        I think Craig’s a reasonable and smart guy. hopefully if he has an issue with what I’ve been posting h’ell take a look at our conversation, understand the source of my frustration, and give me a mulligan. but if he doesn’t whatever would I do? I’d be forced to spend a whole 5 minutes creating a new account. what an awful fate that would be….idiot

      • Chris Fiorentino - Aug 10, 2011 at 10:06 PM

        There you go again. Even after I apologized for losing my cool and posting something on your blog that I should not have, and after it seemed that our disagreement was nothing more than a reasonable misunderstanding, where I may not have expressed my initial opinion as well as I wish I had, you still have to take the time to call me an idiot. Unbelievable.

      • derpdederpdederp - Aug 10, 2011 at 10:08 PM

        I assume you missed this post on the AA story, so here you go:

        Chris, if that was actually the point you were trying to make from the get-go you need to word your posts a lot better (dont even try to rehash that argument here if you think we agree) I respect Craigs blog too but people like you can really get to me. It seems youre trying to backtrack, get the last word in, and then extend the olive branch to make it look like youre the one taking the high road. Im not buying it for a second. That thing you sent me showed what youre all about, I never once went outside this forum but you sunk to that level. Thats all Ive got to say about that, enough is enough

        you seem to want the last word pretty badly so you can have it

      • derpdederpdederp - Aug 10, 2011 at 10:51 PM

        I just figured out youre a Phillies fan, so safe to say I’ll get some empathy from Craig

      • Matt D. - Aug 11, 2011 at 7:28 AM

        “you seem to want the last word pretty badly so you can have it”

        Evidently not…

      • derpdederpdederp - Aug 11, 2011 at 2:34 PM

        that was my last comment, so yeah he couldve, he didnt want to keep embarrassing himself I guess. he said Craig would ban me for swearing but when I found out he was a Phillies fan I had to make note of it because I know Craig will at least understand why I lost my cool and dropped the f-bomb on his blog

    Yahoo Serious?

    • aceshigh11 - Aug 10, 2011 at 4:18 PM

      LOL! Spot-on comparison.

    A.J. Burnout looks like he opened up the Ark of the Covenant and took a peek.

  5. poprox13 - Aug 10, 2011 at 4:19 PM

    Leave AJ alone!!! (i love the way he’s pitching, bawwwwaahhh)

  6. sabathiawouldbegoodattheeighthtoo - Aug 10, 2011 at 4:19 PM

    He’s looking at his stats…

  7. spudchukar - Aug 10, 2011 at 4:24 PM

    It is clean cut though wouldn’t you say ‘Cepts? Fior?

  8. jayxz102 - Aug 10, 2011 at 4:54 PM

    New haircut. Same dead arm.

    I thought he was looking at the Yank’s playoff roster.
