Yankees after Burnett?

MLBTR is reporting that there is a slight chance that the Bombers are after the Blue Jay. Ca$h Money and J.P. do have trade history but they are both in the same division.

CBS Sports' Danny Konbler wrote:
"Blue Jays general manager J.P. Ricciardi told Toronto reporters that he now doesn't expect to trade A.J. Burnett. But Burnett's Friday night start at Tampa Bay attracted more than a dozen scouts, including two from the Yankees. Several of the scouts in attendance didn't stay for the rest of the weekend series, a clear indication that they were in town strictly to watch Burnett" 

There are signs that they are looking at him but no hard evidence.
