The Market for AJ Burnett Expands
According to the Lohud Blog the Indians and Angels are now in the mix for AJ Burnett, with the Indians willing to deal Travis Hafner to fill our hole at DH, and the Angels potentially willing to deal one of their excess outfielders for the same role. This puts us at the RJG in a strange position. All year we've been sarcastically joking that there was a market for Burnett. Now there actually is a market for Burnett. Its no longer a joke, which makes us a credible source for actual news, which completely counters our entire business model. As we begin to reorganize all our assets at the RJG, we would like to mention that the Angels are apparently on Burnett's partial No Trade list, which makes them an unlikely landing spot. The one thing I will say is that its at least looking promising. Kind of like the previews for the Avengers, and much like the Avengers, this better not disappoint.
