Oh, well, it's plan-C time in Atlanta.
Furthering their massive rotation-reconstruction process, the Yankees have won the bidding for Burnett. Major League Baseball sources confirmed late Friday afternoon that the 31-year-old right-hander has agreed to a deal reportedly worth $82.5 million over five years.
Maybe now we'll see the Braves pull some trades. Let's just hope they're not trades of desperation.
What was it I said this morning? Will Frank Wren be up to the task of rebuilding the Braves?
The silver lining in all of this is that at least we drove up the price on the Yankees. We made them guaratee a fifth year, that's a mild consolation prize.
