I have a conspiracy theory about Sean Burnett. Conspiracy theories are inherently interesting, but Sean Burnett is inherently uninteresting. As such, the mileage you get out of this post may vary. I'll be honest, I'm just killing time, hoping the Angels do something big and interesting today to give something bigger and more interesting to write about.
Anyway, here is my theory: Sean Burnett isn't going to be healthy to start the 2014 season. (Cue ominous music)
Yes, I know, this is right up there with the JFK grassy knoll theory, but it is one that does have a fair amount of impact on the Angels' season. Burnett is expected to be a big part of their revamped bullpen. When people talk of the Bullpen of Perpetual Sorrow turning their fortunes around, the first thing they mention is the Joe Smith signing. The second thing they mention is getting a healthy Burnett back as he is a top lefty setup man when he is 100%. So, if he isn't 100%, that is kind of a problem.no comments
