A.J. Burnett robs Russell Martin's attempt to throw out runner, just wants to keep pitching

Like, whatever, Russell.

Jon Jay attempted to steal second base during Saturday's game against the Pirates, and Pittsburgh backstkop Russell Martin naturally tried to throw out the Cardinals outfielder with a strong toss over his pitcher's head.

But it was A.J. Burnett on the mound, and Burnett won't be bothered by men running around the bases. He'll snatch that throw. He must continue pitching.
