After 20 years of heartbreaking baseball in this town, I can't believe that someone would take offense to A.J. Burnett's highly coveted reward to those who are heroes of the game: getting a cream pie in the face ("Not Amused," Aug. 9). My only disappointment is that A.J. Burnett mysteriously eluded a cream pie facial after he threw a complete game.
Congratulations, Pittsburgh Pirates! Here's mud in your eye!
