He pitches a good game so you stick him in there, then he sucks for 2 or 3 games until you decide to bench him again, then while on your bench he pitches a gem like today against the yanks on 3 games rest. You have to be kidding me.


By far the most annoying pitcher to own, especially in dynasty leagues. I've had this clown for 6 years now and I'm still waiting for him to get over the mental hurdles.

As a fellow Burnett owner, I sympathize entirely. How does this a$$hat give up 15 runs in 2 starts vs. Baltimore, and then dominate the Yankees over 8 IP? He's not quite good enough to start every week, but impossible to correctly spot start--he has no trend vs. bad opponents or good ones, inconsistent both at home and on the road...I just don't know how to treat this guy.

How about treating him to your bench?? ;-D

Treat him to the waiver wire, he's basically the Barry Bonds of pitching, who knows when to start him to get the nice numbers.

Aaron Harang has been very bad for me.
