It didn't take long for the newest Pittsburgh Pirate to feel the shame and pain associated with being a Pittsburgh Pirate. Pitcher A.J. Burnett tragically misinterpreted the rules of a Spring Training bunting contest in Bradenton, Florida yesterday. Turns out bunting the ball squarely into your own face doesn't make you the automatic winner. In fact, it gets you flown back to Pittsburgh for medical examination. The obvious silver lining here is that if Burnett did indeed incur long-term eye damage, he won't have to watch his team sputter along to its 20th consecutive losing season.
