Verducci comments on Gary Carter, A.J. Burnett’s future
Sports Illustrated’s Tom Verducci joined the show to talk about Gary Carter’s death and other big stories in baseball.
Verducci noted Carter’s love of the big moment and his tenacity. He also said Carter’s personality really helped the young Mets. “He was the ballast of that team,” Verducci said.
Verducci also weighed in on A.J. Burnett. He said the Yankees pitcher has the ability to block deals. Verducci thinks that the Pittsburgh Pirates are the best fits.
Verducci, like Dan, noted how complicated the Ryan Braun story is getting. It’s not cut and dry to say the least.
