Another Yankees v Red Sox Bidding War

Kat O'Brien  has the latest news on A.J. Burnett. The Jays already offered 4 years $54 mill to Burnett. Now the Red Sox and Yankees are going to bid against each other for this injury bound lefty. The Yankees are expected to make an opening bid of at most 4 years 80 million.

Now this just seems silly to me. This guy, Burnett, averages less than 150 innings per season over the last 9 years. Shesh, it seems to me if we sign him, The Yankees would be paying a buttload of money for a guy to sit on the DL. He does have ace material but the injuries just bring him down. He is already 32 extending any pitcher this age for 4 more years is nuts. I'm with NoMaas on this one:

Yankees To Offer Deals to Big Name Pitchers

The Yankees are offering deals to CC, Burnett and Lowe. The 3 offers together will total around 250 million together. The offer to CC will exceed Johan's deal of 137 million. I think that it is very aggressive to go after all three of them. I personally do not like Burnett and think he will just end up getting injured. If all three are signed (not likely) imagine the rotation...

Ha Ha Sucks for You

Hohohoho this just makes me happy

Even though the Yankee score is still tied some news from Buster Onley has made me very giddy.
Buster has reported that the Giants are moving Barry Zito into the bullpen. Wow... The Giants have got them selves a 126 million dollar relief pitcher.
