NEW YORK -- The good news for the tied-for-first-place New York Yankees is A.J. Burnett didn't hurt himself. There were no self-inflicted wounds for attacking clubhouse doors, and he didn't have to go to the principal's office for fibbing.
The bad news for the Yankees is Burnett is such a large October question mark. The Yankees never know how much concentration he has on a given night. They don't know whether Good A.J. or Bad A.J. will show up.
