Surprising to see this thread get no action. Big value if he can repeat last year.
Want help in your A/C threads? Give details!!! Keeper/dynasty/redraft, ppr, league size, who is on your roster, roto/H2H, scoring system, etc.

Losing the Astros from that division takes some of his appeal away. Reds upgraded there lineup, Cards are super tough, Brewers are tough, the Cubs and Astros were the whipping boys you could count for a QS start against just about everytime out. I still think he is a solid 5/6 SP, you just have to be smart with where and who you start him against. He is not an every turn out starter at this point.

Outside of the top 15-20 pitchers, no one is an every turn out starter. Burnett is being drafted around 200, so he's a good value pick.

His peripherals really matched well with what he did last year, as he greatly improved his control and induced lots of ground balls. It will be interesting to see if he can maintain the gains he made in terms of BB numbers. Certainly moving to the NL helped keep his Ks plentiful too.

Yup. His peripherals were nastyyyy. This is Moneyball right here. No one wants this guy, but the deep, underlying peripherals are really fantastic.

By "jinx", do you mean just worked his way out of a tight jam including 2 Ks?? Yres, he did give up a walk, but looked pretty cool and composed working his way out of 2nd and 3rd with nobody out. I'll take it.

AJ is a strikeout machine these first two starts of the season. 19 Ks in 11 innings.

That knuckle curve is sick.

He looks so composed compared to his early years. Even in the first few innings where they thought the dodgers were stealing signs he just adjusted and moved on.

Pretty fun guy to watch!

Despite being 36 years old, his stuff is still really good. Burnett was routinely hitting 96 with his fastball and his curve was nasty as usual. Glad I decided to start him even though he didn't pick up the QS.

The lance berkman of pitchers. Will be the biggest steal of the draft if he remains healthy. Passed over in drafts solely due to age but he's a strikeout artist on an improving team in the NL
I back the realest and original Polanco :-)
