We Have a Deadline in the AJ Burnett Talks


It seems we’ve been talking about AJ Burnett for a week now, but news from Ken Rosenthal today is that the Yankees want a deal in place before Saturday.  Pitchers and catchers are to report to Tampa for the Yankees on Sunday, so it does put a nice bow on the entire process.

The Pirates seem to be the sole trade partner in the talks at this time.  Sources throughout the league have all come back to Pittsburgh as the realistic trade partner in the deal.
