If you had two clients playing in the World Series, who would you want them to be after watching the first two games of the world series? Would they be Cliff Lee and A.J. Burnett? If your name is Darek Braunecker, that dream is actually a reality. Braunecker, whom I recently covered in an Agent Spotlight piece, represents the two superstars from Arkansas.
In Game 1, Cliff Lee went a full 9 innings to pick up a complete game win. He gave up 1 unearned run and fanned 10 batters, while walking none! Then, yesterday in Game 2, the Yankees were desperate for a big game from Burnett. And he delivered. Burnett went 7 innings, giving up only 1 earned run, fanned 9, and walked 2. Braunecker is definitely happy with both pitcher’s strike-out/walk ratio.
So now Braunecker can relax for a few days…until Lee takes the hill again. Next time, Darek won’t have to worry about Lee actually making it to the game he is scheduled to pitch. NY traffic can really make things difficult.
