I have him in a few Points leagues. Pritty standard stats (Wins,Saves,Strike Outs ect.) No stats where you would have nigtive points for but there an innings limit.

So I like to try to make the most of the innings I have and I try to get as many strike outs that as possable and I like it if my starters averge a strike out per inning or close to it.

I drafted Burnett becouse he has done that in past years and thought he could again. But this year he has only 19 Strike Outs in 28 innings and that isn't acceptable in my standards.

The question I have is should I seat on him and leave him on my bench to hope the strike out totals come up in time or should I just give up on him.

So can I get an option on him?

I would keep him. Someone dropped him in my league; he's now on my watch list. His last start (at Yankee Stadium, btw) was excellent. 7IP 5K, 0ER
