Not too much gonig on last night, unless you count the continuing A.J. Burnett bloviating.
- K-Ros reports that the Braves talks with Burnett's agents "progressed through the night," but the Braves are still only offering four guaranteed years with an easily attainable vesting option for the fifth year. He says the Yankees are in the same neighborhood... for now.
- ESPN is reporting that the Yankees have already gone to five years on Burnett. If that's the case, then why is this thing still going on?
- Apparently a bunch of Yankees' players are calling Burnett to try and convince him to join the team. C'mon Chipper, he's your friend, put the full court press on him!
- The Braves may be formulating backup plans, and have reportedly expressed some interest in Derek Lowe.
- Apparently, the re-claim of Jairo Cuevas by the Royals didn't go over too well in some Braves circles. It is a very odd re-move.
- We could be seeing a lot of Mark Teixeira, as the Nationals are actively bidding on his services.
- Former Braves farmhand and seventh-round draft pick, Brett Evert, is now the regional scouting supervisor for the Braves in the Northwest.
I'll have a Rule 5 Draft open thread up at 10am, the draft starts at 11:30am.
