A little piece i found on burnett.

 

The Marlins, like the Cubs, have three names on that list, and you could easily add a fourth, Carl Pavano, who at 28 has come into his own. Burnett, who threw a no-hitter at 24, missed the Marlins' championship season last year after undergoing Tommy John surgery, but while teammate Beckett was the World Series MVP, Schilling advises to watch out when Burnett returns, which could be as soon as next month.

 

"Burnett, before he got hurt, by far had the best physical stuff of just about anybody in the game, not just a young pitcher," Schilling said. "Unbelievable stuff. And guys coming back from Tommy John a lot of times are better than they were before, because they find out about their arm, what it takes to be a pitcher. Your money as a pitcher is tied into taking the ball every fifth day, not throwing 97 miles an hour."

Curt Schilling is just an awesome guy, just speaking the truth. Burnett probably does has the best stuff in the majors when he's healthy. Who else can throw a 99 MPH two-seemer and then a 75 MPH 12-6 curve.

And a "WTF IS THAT s*** COMMING AT ME?!?!" Knucklecurve as a matter of fact

Knuckle-Curve=Curveball

 

The diffrence is that you get more spin on the ball when you throw the knuckle curve since the index finger is spiked up.

 

But a true knucklecurve is two fingertips on the ball with the curveball spin.

 

Burnett throws the Spike Curve.

If there's one thing you know, it's pitching.
