Welcome to Yankees Family, CC & A.J.
Burnett showed off good sense of humor during press conference and interviews, such us media issue, DL issue and Jeter's recruiting call, etc. I actually was persuaded by Burnett why he finally stays healthy and has a career year by changing from a thrower to a pitcher. The way he answers questions leads me to believe Yankees' spotlight may help him. By the way, I like the idea to recruit Roy Halladay when he becomes free agent two years later.
CC comes as advertised. He looked a little bit nervous, but he certainly well prepared for specific questions. With time going by, CC became a little more relaxed and showed more his real personality. Based on what I heard from CC, he will love to pitch in New York and Yankees fans and players will love to have him as well.
