AJ Burnett & the Case of the Rapidly Growing Nose

Oh, AJ. Haven't we talked about how your sexy, I'm-a-bad-boy thing you have going on might do it for me but might also not be how a Yankees player should behave?

It seems that AJ's temper got the better of him and he shoved a plexi-glass door, causing those cuts on his hands that made him exit the game on Saturday. AJ originally cried that he slipped on the dugout steps, and cut himself bracing his fall. The truth came out, as it always does with the men in my life, and now he's got some egg on his face, rather than the shaving cream pie that looks so much better.

The injury shouldn't affect his next start physically, but what is going on in AJ's head right now and can he shake it off?
