What should the Yankees do with A.J. Burnett?

Will the real A.J. Burnett please stand up? Wait, he can't be found. What should Girardi do with Burnett? He can't keep sending him out there every 5 days to record a loss. They should try and fix him like they did Vazquez?

    dont do anything with aj burnett. even with his struggles we still have the best record in baseball and he has historically been an all-or-nothing pitcher. he'll straighten this out, no worries.

    a lot of people don't realize that this june, aj has posted the highest era of any yankee pitcher in any one month in history. and yet, we still have a 2 game lead over the rays and red sox. junes over, burnett will be fine.

    dont fret

    A.J. Burnett has had similar problems throughout his career and he always comes back. His inconsistancy is probably caused by his late release point so it cant be fixed without risking his movement on off speed pitches. He should be kept in the rotation as usaul and pitchted every 5 days especially because even with his problems the Yankees are doing well. Also the Yankees didnt fix Vasquez he simply calmed down and settled into pitching in New York which takes time for some players since New York is a unique atmosphere.

    I say they try and fix what is wrong with Burnett. If they find they can not fix what is wrong with Burnett then maybe they should let wrong out of the bullpen. Maybe Burnett is dealing with confidence issues right now. I would think putting him the bullpen and let him work maybe an inning at a time for a couple of weeks. He might prove to be more effective that way.

    Another thing that might be wrong with Burnett is that maybe he has an injury that he is not telling anyone about and he is trying to be tough and play through it all. If Burnett is playing with an injury he is doing nothing but hurting the Yankees right now.

    Bepatient. The worst thing that the Yankees can do is panic, plain and simple

    They're going to keep starting him every 5th day like they have been doing.
