Who lands A.J. Burnett?

Braves are said to be the front runners with a 4 year deal worth reportedly $60M with a 5th year option. They do however still have to contend with the Phillies, Yankees, and Blue Jays

Update:

The Red Sox have been said to be out and there are some reports saying the Yankees are slowly turning away.

    I honestly dont think the Yanks will go after Burnett. They are spending as much money as they can to acquire Sabathia at this moment.

    Burnett is like that dark horse rite now. He's the consolation prize. I dont expect him to land a huge deal unless its from a sub-team like Atlanta. At this moment, I could see him heading to the Braves.

    i think you are forgetting about another possible contender for Burnett. The Mets are also a major player for him. I think if doesnt go to either the Yankees or Red Sox, the Phillies and Mets will be trying to out bid each other for his services.

    Okay 3 possible teams of getting him: Yankees- They might not get Sabathia because he either might want more, angels might give him more, or the yankees don't want to wait longer. And even if they do land Sabathia they can still land Burnett.

    Bluejays- Might still be in the running, only worry is they go out and spend more money on younger players instead of Burnett.

    Redsox- If they don't go for Texiera they have the money to get him it's just wether or not they want too.

    I think the Braves will eventually will end the A.J. Burnett sweepstakes.

  • i think its between yankees and atlanta

    atlanta needs a SP since they were not able to work a deal with San Diego for Peavy

    Yankees biggest need without a doubt is SP and i do not think they will land C.C Sabathia i really believe he will choose a west coast team over the money

    If the Yanks don't get CC then I think he'll end up a Yank . If the Yanks do get CC then he'll probably end up a Brave because of that 5th year option the offered .

    I think either the Blue Jays will resign him or the Red Sox will sign him.

    The Yanks have tons of $$$$$$ to spend and AJ is just waiting until CC makes a move.
