Front Doors Double Glazed Fitted - It's something to be labeled based on your results. It's another matter to succumb to that label as easily as A.J. Burnett did this weekend. His behaviour on Saturday was a clear sign that not only does he pitch with all or nothing results, but he also pitches with an all or nothing attitude. And the worst part is, he shows no signals of fighting to rid himself of this label.
Rather than seeing this weekend as the opportunity to show he can scratch and claw to keep his team in a game despite a bad start, Burnett let his emotions get the very best of him. This weekend it became clear that Burnett doesn't have desire or the focus to pitch in grind-it-out circumstances. This indicates that he feels if he does not have a stone going by the second inning, what is the point? Why even bother? The game is a lost cause.
At 33, Burnett should also know some other things. When things get tough, he should know that most good athletes rise to challenges and bear down. He should know that it's every starting pitcher's job to provide his team the opportunity to win each time he takes the mound. He does not have to control in every trip. Sometimes his task would be to maintain the game close. Sometimes his task would be to maintain his own offense within striking distance.
Above all, itis a starting pitcher's job to provide every time he is called on to pitch to attempt. This does not just mean physical effort. This means mental exertion. What this means is tossing to the ebbs and flows of the game. Suck it up like Burnett did on Saturday should you give up an early lead and give your team a chance to come back. Do not let your machinists get lazy as a result of lost focus and concentration. And definitely, don't lose control of your emotions.
