Burnett…Bur-NOT

Roch mentions that A.J._Burnett_ain’t_happening.

You already know the Orioles aren’t getting A.J. Burnett, who should command a five-year deal. That’s two more than the Orioles want to offer, as I’ve been saying.

The Yankees are supposedly offering 5 years and at least 80 million for the pleasure of AJ on their roster. At that price and length, they can have him. I’m a skeptic on AJ and would rather not have the team commit that time and money on a pitcher who delivers only in his contract year and the rest of the time he’s banged up or medicore. He could be aces for the Yankees or whatever team he signs with or if he’s Carl Pavano re dux.

  1. I’m relieved. AJ is up and down, often injured…not the pitcher we want.
