Current Pirates ace A.J. Burnett was nothing more than a tattooed mental midget with the Yankees in the Bronx

A.J. Burnett was not a man designed for the city of New York.

A.J. Burnett guided the Pittsburg Prates to a 5-4 triumph over the Phillies yesterday at Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia.

The 35-year-old Burnett, who has gone 9-2 with a 3.31 ERA in 13 starts, managed to become the first Pirates pitcher to record eight consecutive wins since 1974.

In the meantime, while the tattooed mental midget has ascended into an ace in the “Steel City,” the Yankees placed rotation stalwarts CC Sabathia and Andy Pettitte on the disabled list Wednesday.

The 40-year-old Pettitte (3-3, 3.22 ERA) fractured his fibula near his left ankle and is expected to be sidelined for approximately two-months and Sabathia (9-3, 3.45 ERA) will be shelved for 15-days with a strained groin.
