A Giant Yankee Doppelganger


As a member of the Marlins, AJ Burnett once threw a no-hitter while simultaneously allowing 9(!!!) walks and out dueling the immortal Wascar Serrano. Since then, he has had both great success and great disappointments in the American League East and is likely to become a huge albatross around the neck of the Yankees payroll as he becomes a newer, wilder, more expensive version of Carl Pavano. On the other hand, Matt Cain is one of the most appealing young pitchers in the game, brought up to the bigs at the tender age of 20, his win-loss record is uninspiring but he has also been one of the unluckiest pitchers in the game, receiving little to no run support the last few seasons. When opposing GMs call the Giants, Cain is the player everyone looks to grab.

Reader Mattraw sent along this doppelganger and I think it has legs, and arms, and teeth even too! Let us know what YOU think by VOTING in the poll below and if this doppelganger receives enough votes it will move on to the PERMANENT Doppelganger page here.
