No matter how good Burns may end up being I don't think a guy like Burns who has come off a Shield season with the mighty average of 34.5 should be anywhere near the team in front of a guy with 8,000 fc runs @ 43 batting at the sharp end who has had yet another 40+ average season let along a guy with 19,000 fc runs at 50 opening who has averaged 50 again this Shield season. We just don't have that luxury atm.
I'm a Burns fan and hope he can come on and become a top notch player, but let him force his way in by making runs. Not a couple of tons and lots of ducks and sfa scores. We might as well have stuck with Marcus North if that was all we were looking for.
