AJ Burnett has epic struggle to spell Pedro Alvarez’s name

AJ BurnettA.J. Burnett made an effort to stand up for teammate Pedro Alvarez on Monday, but he ended up in an embarrassing situation instead.

The Pittsburgh Pirates pitcher was stunned and disappointed to learn that Alvarez, who is third in the NL with 22 home runs this season, was not chosen by David Wright to represent the NL in the Home Run Derby. Burnett expressed disgust with the omission, but he misspelled Alvarez’s last name in the process. Multiple times.

Not to worry, Burnett noticed his error and set out to correct it:

Wait, didn’t he just misspell it again? That’s OK, third time’s a charm …

Finally, he just gave up.

From exploding rosin bags to misspellings, it’s been a rough couple of days for Burnett.
