What to do about AJ? Worry?

Here's my thing about AJ: does he scare the hell out of me in a playoff game? Well I'd have to be pretty dumb not to be terrified of what he might do in October.

But that being said, I still feel a hell of a lot more confident handing him the ball in a big spot than I do giving it to Wright or Brown or Vazquez or Randy or (sad but true) Wang.

Joba is the one that really scares me, if nothing else I know AJ is at least capable of saving the bullpen in an ugly game.

Man, a shudder just went through me.

Raging, that's a good pernt, and I concur.

[1] I also think there's a much better chance of a dominant Burnett outing than a dominant Joba outing.

not much concern here, apparently....i know the team is playing very well, and there's not much choice but AJ as a game 2 starter (with pettitte starting game 3 on the road), but, still, things could get real ugly real fast....

and this assumes that CC's troubles from last year's post-season don't carry over...
