Prediction time: Burnett will give the Yankees a few years of Cy Young type numbers while Sabathia ends up being a bust overall. I do think he will show some flashes of brilliance and have some good runs, but he will never be worth the price the Yankees paid to acquire him.
And they’re already discussing what is gonna happen to Girardi if he doesn’t deliver with these two big, highly priced guns on the roster. Ask me how many postseason wins these guys have combined.
We all know that a month into the season when the Yankees start 8-13, and Sabathia goes on the DL for a sore arm, Steinbrenner money manufacturing company will be on the horn to Mike Mussina begging him to come back.
