No more excuses for A.J. Burnett and no more Yankee thoughts.

Burnett the Pirate took some blame for his failures with the Yankees yesterday at Pirate City, but also said he may have let too many people in pinstripes mess with his mechanics.

"Without getting too far into it,'' Burnett explained, "I would just say I let a few too many people tinker with me and when you let that happen, you get out there, you start doubting yourself sometimes, like, 'Am I doing it right? Is this the way it is supposed to feel?'
