A.J. Burnett on Celebratory Pie-Throwing: Safety First!

Just because the Marlins can't pull off a proper celebratory pie toss — Chris Coghlan managed to tear the meniscus in his knee nailing Wed Helms in the face on Sunday — doesn't mean A.J. Burnett is going stop the practice himself. It's all about proper form, you see, and the Marlins don't have a pro like Burnett around anymore to make sure no one gets hurt. Said Burnett: "You can't take the fun out of the game, but you have to do it right, I guess." Added the righty, who we'll remind you injured his hands earlier this month after shoving a clubhouse door in frustration: "I always try to somewhat think safety first."
