I totally agree. This guy can't buy a W. It's unbelievable when you look at his numbers.

The marlins bullpen just sucks that much. They should have traded for Urbina if anything. (I don't know what they could have offered though...)
Yes, I was, uh... I was thinking about ordering the tape, the videotape... about the college girls and the... the wild... the wildness. They're going wild or something? Somebody told me... about going wild.

Wins are the last category that I worry about. You cant chase them.

Try Clemens - leads in ERA and can't get any runs scored for him. Could easily have 8-10 wins with any type of run support.

Yeah,

Burnett is pretty unlucky..I always see him pitching a gem, and then his bullpen blows runs for him.

Florida's bullpen= Butt-Nuggets :-t

Yeah, I would have to say that there are unluckier pitchers. Clemens this year and Sheets and Johnson last year are just a few that come to my mind. At least Burnett's getting some run support. His pen just sucks something fierce.

Burnett has had some bad luck, but this is his 2nd start in a row where he was pitching a gem and was left in the game 1 inning too long. He gave up 3 runs in the 7th last Sunday and couldn't get the win, and he gave up 2 runs in the 8th Yesterday and got the ND. Then again the bullpen has been terrible so I guess I can't blame McKeon for keeping him in there.
